This little town nestled in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains treats its visitors to about 300 sunny days a year. It's a popular spot for those needing a dose of sun during Seattle's long rainy season, and summer events like the Lavender Festival draw crowds. Find year-round entertainment at the Olympic Game Farm, where you can feed bison from your car window, and the Dungeness Spit , a paradise for birders and nature lovers. For a tasty meal, try Khu Larb Thai. For a longer visit, try the cozy Juan de Fuca Cabins . You may decide to follow the example of many of the town's inhabitants and retire here.
My family and I have recently moved up here, and have so far loved it! We have a very nice house, the schools offer lots of fun activities, and there's lots of scenery your family can enjoy (like the Dungeness Spit). Sequim is a quiet community, and you don't hear much about kids getting involved with drugs or anything like that. There are a variety of places you can take your family out to eat. Sequim is close to my ideal town to live in. The only drawback about this town is that it rains a lot, and there aren't many jobs here.
Sequim has been my home for 30 years and now I can't wait to move out. It is totally overrun by people who want to retire to a "rural area". Sorry folks, Sequim quit having any rural feel more than 20 years ago...you have no clue. I remember ONE traffic light in town - now there are eight lights, a bypass, and two traffic circles. There used to be only two good places to eat out, and now Sequim is full of fast food joints. Tracts of land have been logged for housing and stores, farmland has been broken up for housing tracts. People keep moving in and, within the first year, start griping about how the rural atmosphere is being ruined by growth. Ha ha ha..........you get what you ask for. If you want to live in a big city with no services or amenities, move to Sequim or the surrounding area.
I really enjoy going to Sequim, Wa. It reminds me of the small town of South Pasadena, Ca. before all the land developments. Small town, lots of shopping and eateries, the lavender capital of America, so they say... and a wonderful lavender and rasberry farm.. Graysmarsh Farm. The owners are wonderful warm people, let us have a picnic right on their fields, and the picking of raspberries and strawberries is perfect for dessert. Very romantic but also a good family outing. Only thing is the Sequim traffic signs... very confusing, arrows all over,,, definitely need to stop and ask the locals... but the people are friendly, and always willing to help. Stop by and tell them Mari sent you ;)
The Dungeness spit was the highlite of our trip. A landmass that extends 7 mile out into the Straits of Juan De Fuca. We also visited the game farm where animals tried to get into our car as we fed them. We capped it off with a trip to the Oak Table Cafe. The absolute best restaurant on the peninsula. Ask for Ross, he always gives us grown ups entertainment and shows the kids a magic trick.
