Sequim & the Dungeness Valley

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.

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.
