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.
Sequim restaurants rival those found in big cities with variety, quality and sophistication. We are so lucky to have a wealth of talented, creative chefs that call Sequim home. Here they have a wide choice of fresh local ingredients provided by the fertile Dungeness Valley farms and fishing waters along the coastline. Additionally, Sequim has a beautiful setting, with a lively, walkable downtown that draws tourists and the many festival goers every season. However, it’s the warm and welcoming community that make Sequim such an appealing place to put down roots. Come out and visit Sequim to taste the best food found on the Olympic Peninsula.
