Sequim / pronounced skwim
Searching for sunshine? The captivating town of Sequim and the surrounding Dungeness Valley see about the same amount of annual rainfall as Los Angeles.
Take in the small-town charm. Marvel at the bounty of lush lavender farms. Stroll boutiques and galleries and indulge in locally grown artisanal and organic fare. Attend renowned regional festivals, and soak up some of the most scenic land-and waterscape imaginable.
Under blue and sunny skies, outdoor adventure abounds. Hike, bike and bird watch. Trek or paddle a 5.5 miles-long spit. Gaze at herds of wild elk or get close to lions, tigers and bears. (From your car, that is.)
Sunset Magazine calls it one of the best unsung beach towns in the West. USA Today named it the 2017 Best Northwest Small Town. There are lots of reasons why.
