Sequim is paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. Hiking through pristine forests and along the nation’s longest natural sand spit, golfing at our distinct golf courses, biking along the Olympic Discovery Trail, fishing in fresh or saltwater and visiting our local berry and lavender farms are just a few of the ideas for your visit to Sequim. You’ll find activities and interests for all members of your party. One of my favorite spots is the John Wayne Marina. A destination for both boater and non-boaters, the John Wayne Marina sits on land donated by the famous actor’s family in recognition of his vision of a marina in the scenic Sequim Bay where he frequented the waters aboard his family yacht the Wild Goose. The marina features permanent and guest moorage, excellent marine services, a restaurant, showers, laundry and banquet facilities, and provides boat launch ramps, fuel facilities, public beach access, and picnic areas. The picnic area has a great view that can be a great place for romantic sunset picnic or just a relaxing place to enjoy with the kids. Sequim, Lavender Capital of North America®, is known for its beautiful lavender farms and quality lavender products. The sunny dry climate in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley is similar to the south of France, making Sequim one of the best places in the country to grow this beautiful, fragrant herb.
