Sequim is called the Lavender Capital of North America and holds its Lavender Festival in mid-July. It is sunnier than most of its neighbors since it is located in the "rainshadow" of the Olympic mountains. Although the Olympic mountains are snow-capped for most of the year very little snow falls in the Sequim Valley.
Over the last decade, Sequim has worked to increase its tourism base to appeal to more people. With the Olympic National Forest, fish hatchery, Dungeness Spit, Hurricane Ridge, Salt Creek State Park, and several other outdoors activity in the area, Sequim is the largest population on the Peninsula, rivaled only by Port Angeles 30 miles to the west.
Sequim also serves as the gateway to enjoying much of the western half of the North Olympic Peninsula.
