Thurston County | Washington

Thurston County, Washington, is located at the southern end of Puget Sound in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Majestic Mount Rainier and the rugged Cascade Mountains are nearby to the east, while Washington's Pacific Ocean coast is just an hour's drive to the west. Thurston County is 60 miles south of Seattle, Washington and is 100 miles north of Portland, Oregon.

Thurston County is home to more than 200,000 residents. Nearly 100,000 residents live in the more urban north county areas in and around the cities of Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater. The rest live in and around the smaller towns of Bucoda, Tenino, Rainier, and Yelm and in the more rural areas of Thurston County.

Thurston County is the eighth most populated county among Washington State's 39 counties and is among the fastest growing counties in the Pacific Northwest.
