Sequim and the Dungeness Valley sit in the 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 agricultural center, Sequim is still rich with organic farm lands and lavender fields, and is known as the Lavender Capital of North America®. The annual Lavender Festival brings thousands of visitors from around the world. 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 and the seaport town of Port Townsend. Seattle is only about a 2 hour drive and the ferry from Port Angeles can take you to Victoria, BC in 90 minutes. For more data about the City of Sequim see here.
