Enjoy browsing boutiques and art galleries in the quaint downtown, savor a meal at one of the local restaurants and take in the spectacular surrounding scenery. Visit during one of Sequim’s events and festivals and get to know some of the people who make this a special community. Outdoor Fun in the Sun Due to the “rain shadow” caused by the Olympic Mountains, Sequim is one of the driest places in Western Washington. It is even home to a tiny prickly pear cactus. Averaging just 16 inches of annual rainfall, Sequim is the perfect destination for outdoor adventure. Bring your binoculars to better enjoy the area’s won- derful vistas as you hike, bike, kayak, golf and bird-watch. Rich in Agricultural Heritage Sequim is known for its organic fruits and vegetables and the fragrant herb lavender. In the summer, pause at roadside stands and U-pick farms for raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and strawberries. Shop the Sequim Farmers’ Market for the freshest local produce. Visit local lavender farms to pick your own sweet bouquets and purchase hand-crafted lavender products. Many farms are open for U-pick from July through September. Also enjoy local products from the Dungeness Valley Cream- ery and savor the native Dungeness crab.
