Winter is a great time to visit Sequim. There are many reasons to explore this piece of paradise on the Olympic Peninsula. We have great sunny weather year-round with mild winter temperatures. The landscape is amazing, with beautiful coastlines, forests, valleys and snow capped mountains in the distance. Not to mention Sequim’s walkable downtown with great shops, restaurants and cafes. Plan a weekend escape to sunny Sequim on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula this winter.
Planning a winter escape is simply not necessary for Sequim residents. Since it’s located within the rain shadow of the Olympic mountain range, Sequim stays dry and sunny throughout the year. And this ideal weather creates mild temperatures and an annual rainfall of only 17 inches. While we do get the occasional snow flurry, winter days stay in the 40’s. So Sequim locals can play outside all year. Not to mention the lively, walkable downtown when they want to spend an evening at a great restaurant or shopping. All this in a beautiful setting surrounded by snow capped mountains, old growth forests and a shimmering coastline. Sequim really has everything that makes a great location and community.
