Sequim is one of the best places to live on the Olympic Peninsula

 

The most populous cities on the peninsula include Port Angeles, Sequim, and Port Townsend. Each town has a distinctly different vibe and community composition.

Port Angeles

Whether you’re into hiking, biking, fishing, boating, shopping, arts & culture, or something in between, there are more than enough things to do in  Port Angeles to keep you busy.  There are also a number of wonderful day trips that can be taken from here as you explore the farthest reaches of the stunning Olympic Peninsula.

Sequim

While the rest of the Pacific Northwest settles for plenty of rain and dreary days throughout the year, Sequim enjoys more sun and dry weather. But the weather isn’t the only great thing about Sequim. There really is a big variety of things to do in Sequim.  Sequim’s mild, sunny, and dry weather is what first earned it so much national notoriety, as it was ranked one of the best towns to retire to in the country.  But Sequim is more than just a great retirement town.  It’s a wonderful place to live, work, and play – and this is what makes it one of the best places to live on the Olympic Peninsula!

Our offices are located in Sequim and we’ve been helping people buy and sell homes here for decades.  We’d love to share more about what makes Sequim great with you.  You can read one of our (many) blogs about our favorite things to do in Sequim, but you should also reach out to us to learn more about what makes this such a great community!
