Sequim “merges culture and nature in the Pacific Northwest,” according to Newsmax magazine. “Unique to Sequim are the magnificent lavender fields and festivals that delight the senses. Known as the ‘lavender capital of North America,’ Sequim (pronounced skwim) is just two hours north of Seattle, but sits in the ‘rain shadow’ of the Olympic Mountains. As a result, it gets just 16 inches of precipitation annually. Scenic adventures include exploring gorgeous Puget Sound and taking the 30-minute ferry ride to Victoria, Canada. Culture abounds with the Museum and Arts Center’s rotating exhibits and the Olympic Theatre Arts performances.”
No surprise for those of us who live and love it here.
