Our Cities & Communities| Sequim
The City of Sequim is located in the heart of the Olympic Peninsula in the far Northwest corner of Washington State. You can reach Sequim by land, ferry and car, and by air through Port Angeles. Sequim is approximately a two hour trip from Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia and Victoria, British Columbia.
Sequim sits in a rainshadow of the Olympic Mountains and is one of the driest places in Western Washington making it a popular retirement community and a prime destination for outdoor adventure. True to its history as an agriculture center, Sequim is still rich with organic farm lands and lavender fields, and is known as the Lavender Capital of North America®. The City serves as a regional retail center for the Olympic Peninsula and offers advanced medical care services.
Sequim is centrally located between Port Angles, with access to the Olympic National Park, and the seaport town of Port Townsend.
