Sequim is a small city on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington (state).

Sequim Area

With a population of 5,000, Sequim offers small-town charm with big city amenities. You will find unsurpassed natural beauty and a unique Northwest identity. Sequim is located in one of the most beautiful spots in the world. The soaring Olympic Mountains decorate the city’s southern border and the waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca create a northern boundary. Sequim’s ideal weather and rich soil are the envy of other coastal towns and all of Western Washington. You may want to bring a bucket to pick lavender, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. Sequim is also famous for the flavorful native Dungeness crab.
