Sequim, Washington has been repeatedly ranked as one of the best little towns in the United States to retire in. Having raised my own family here, I can testify to the fact that this is a wonderful little community away from all the crime and traffic congestion that drives most of us crazy.
CNN Money Magazine named Sequim as one of the best places to retire. “Located two hours north of Seattle, Sequim (pronounced skwim) offers a lower cost of living and an easier pace than its burgeoning neighbor to the south. For about $300,000, you can get a three-bedroom house there.”
Sperlings Best Places [Sequim is the best place to live and retire]: “I moved here from San Bernardino and San Diego, my uncle has lived here for 15 years and always bragged about it. So I checked it out. Best move I ever made. Beautiful, peaceful, deer, eagles, no crime. On the water across from Victoria Canada. Hiking, boating, don’t have to lock our doors at night, only downside is 25 mph speed limit, will drive you nuts. We have Walmart and Costco, Home Depot, and peace and quiet.”

We have a lot of retirees moving to Branson, Missouri each year, as well. But some of them get here and realize they don’t care too much for the high humidity levels in the summer, the traffic congestion caused by tourists, and of course, the tornados.
Sounds like Sequim has us beat.
Retirement is about a lifestyle, not just a safe, comfortable place to live but a place where you can have fun, enjoy social activities…where there is a variety of convenient services for you to enjoy including life long learning and wellness care.
The question of the best place for YOU to retire can really only be answered by YOU!
I love NY, but I enjoy reading about Sequim real estate on your blog. Northern NY state has some of the beautiful country that I see out in Sequim and Port Angeles.
Visited Sequim during the Lavender Festival and absolutely love Sequim. Planning to retire there soon.
