Local Shopping in Sequim

Local Shopping SequimMost people that visit or plan to visit Sequim, are aware of its status as a premier outdoor destination.  The expansive waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca or the towering presence of the Olympic Mountains are testimony enough to this.  Whether it’s hiking through pristine forests and beaches, biking the length of the Olympic Discovery Trail, golfing, fishing in both fresh and saltwaters, or visiting the local farms, there are an overwhelming number of choices for outdoor activities in Sequim, and it’s one of the many driving factors behind the decision to relocate to this charming town on the Olympic Peninsula. However, there is so much more to Sequim than it’s majestic beauty.  Take for example the fantastic local shopping available along Main Street in downtown Sequim.  Sequim really does have it all, and we urge you to view our local real estate as you start planning your move here.
