Sequim (pronounced “S’Kwim”)  Washington , and the surrounding Sequim-Dungeness Valley, is located on the Strait of Juan de Fuca on the north coast of Washington State near the base of the Olympic Mountains. Sequim is about two hours away from the metropolitan cities of Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia and is a gateway to the Olympic Peninsula and its numerous tourist attractions.

Sequim is famous throughout the Pacific Northwest for its low rainfall and sunny skies. Known as “Sunny Sequim” or “the Blue Hole”, Sequim lies in the rainshadowof the Olympic mountains, and boasts an average annual rainfall of less than 16 inches.

Originally developed as an agricultural community, the Dungeness Valley is breathtaking with its green, rolling fields and blue skies framing the crisp, white peaks of the Olympics in the distance. In recent years, however, Sequim’s consistently sunny weather, unusual for Western Washington, has drawn many new residents from urban areas elsewhere that want to enjoy the benefits of a less crowded and more friendly community.

Long time residents and newcomers alike can find plenty of activities year round to fit a variety of lifestyles and interests. Fishing, hiking, kayaking, boating, wildlife viewing, swimming, golfing, shopping, beachcombing and many other activities are all available to you in beautiful, sunny Sequim, Washington.
