PORT ANGELES, Wash.— Washington’s Olympic Peninsula boasts quaint port towns and adventures around every dock, and the town of Sequim is no exception. With a population of 6,600 residents, Sequim is surrounded by natural beauty and offers a friendly small town feel. With more days of sunshine than anywhere else in Western Washington, Sequim is protected from the rain by the Olympic Mountains, allowing just the right amount of weather to enter into the town to ensure the landscape remains bountiful with lush valleys and vegetation.
As the gateway to Olympic National Forest, Sequim lures visitors who are on the never-ending search for adventure and a simpler way of life. Taking full advantage of all that Olympic National Forest has to offer, outdoorsmen arrive to Sequim prepared to paddle, hike, bike and explore the naturally beautiful environment.
Sequim has also become the Lavender Capital of North America, with over 30 farms covered by colorful and fragrant herbs. Sequim and Dungeness Bay offer visitors the opportunities to sail, bird-watch and kayak the breathtakingly beautiful surroundings while getting their fix in Mother Nature. And of course, don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for the Sequim Roosevelt elk herd, which can be spotted on the southeastern slopes of town!
