Sequim

A small coastal community situated at the entrance to Olympic National Park, Sequim’s name derives from a Native American expression meaning “quiet waters.” While many typically associate the Pacific Northwest climate with rain, the annual rainfall in Sequim is only 16 inches, making it one of the driest regions in the area. Top attractions include seasonal crabbing and the annual lavender festival, which are a draw for residents and visitors alike. Artisanal and local, organic foodstuffs have become the norm, thanks to a variety of farmers and entrepreneurs who have laid down roots in Sequim. There is a natural beauty in the area’s land and forests that captivates and compels those looking to get away from the bustle of the city or retire.
