 Take a Tour on Thurston County’s Bountiful Byway

Tasty treats and scenic views await

On March 18th, the Thurston County Board of Commissioners officially designated the Thurston Bountiful Byway—a scenic route in the heart of Thurston County's most picturesque rural and agricultural lands.

The byway is a scenic route that promotes agricultural tourism, or agritourism, in the rural parts of Thurston County. The route starts in the Nisqually Valley, stretches south to the city of Yelm and west to the Capital Forest before ending at the intersection of Mud Bay Road and Delphi Road SW.

Along the way you can explore dozens of special stops and activities including creameries, nurseries, wineries, sculpture gardens, and historic sites. There are more than 90 suggested agricultural, ecological and cultural stops along the Bountiful Byway. Pick a day and stop at as many attractions as time allows.

The route was developed in cooperation with several community partners including local farmers and business owners, the Olympia-Lacey-Tumwater Visitor and Convention Bureau, Thurston County WSU Extension, the Thurston Regional Planning Council, and other organizations.

For more information please visit the Bountiful Byway Face Book Page.
