After many of the trees were cut down and Sequim started to become a farming community based on this being one of the few flat sections of land on the Olympic Peninsula, it was found that one of the crops that grew very well here was Lavender."Lavender Capital of North America" is now a registered trademark of Sequim.Today, there are not one but...more

This hidden restaurant sits on the edge of Sequim Bay, and offers some of the best (and expensive!) food in the Sequim area. You will find the restaurant to be richly decorated, the staff to be very attentive, and the food to be wonderful.It is very popular, despite the prices, due to the quality of food. Hence, if you really want to eat here,...more
Featuring a number of artifacts from the 1950s, and what is probably the original black and white tile floor, the Highway 101 Diner create the environment of a place that time forgot. Almost everything you see here, from the Big Pink Automobile Juke Box to the 1950s movie posters is a piece of the past.This place is VERY popular and crowded on...more
Frances and I lived in Sequim Washington for several years, and our favorite spot to take the grandchildren to dinner was Three Crabs. 9 out of 10 grandchildren enjoyed the "Haliwich" the best. It was a Halibut sandwich with french fries or cole slaw. All of the dishes at Three Crabs were good in my opinion.more
3 crabs is one of the first restaurants we went to when we moved to Sequim. We heard so much about it, we really expected the building to be much bigger than it was. We have been back many times.A year after our daughter died, we had a memorial celebration. The first night we hosted friends and family at The 3 Crabs. The staff and management bent...more
This restraunt has a very nice setting as many of the local restraunts in the area. I think that the retirment community fuels these type of restaunts. My food was great. I had a typical omlet and the hashbrowns and such. However one of the people I ate with got pretty sick. I've heard from several locals that this restraunt is consistantly pretty...more
The Casino has your typical slot machines and roulette and craps, but inside the Casino their is a bar and a dance floor. It is great to see the forty somethings and older dancing at the same time as the twenty somethings. The night I went their was a Live Funk Band. It was a very calm atmosphere and not too loud either.
While it is hardly a huge bustling city, Sequim and the surrounding area are connected to the outside world through transit services. They may not be frequent but at least they exist and allow people without a vehicle to visit the city and surrounding area.However, services are quite limited and there are a number of places that, if you decide to...more
So this is more of a very funny sign than an actual tip. This one of a kind sign (it's really there) is on the way out to the Dungeness Spit. I must in response to Wonka's dedication to me on the waterfall page dedicate this tip to vt'ers willy_wonka and arasnosliw. This one's for you girls.more
From Seattle take the Seattle/Bainbridge Island Ferry. From Bainbridge, follow Highway 305 to Highway 3 in Poulsbo. Take Highway 3 to State Highway 104 crossing the Hood Canal Bridge. Continue on Highway 104 to U S Highway 101. Take Highway 101 west for 21 miles to Sequim. Take the Washington St., Sequim Ave. or River Rd. exits to take you into...more
Sequim has become a very popular place to grow lavender, and Martha Lane Lavender is a self-pick lavender farm, with a wide selection of types available. The variety of plants means that the lavender here is in bloom all the way into late August, and possibly even September depending on the weather that particular year.The facility isn't huge, but...more
While the farm grows its own lavender, and creates a wide number of lavender products, there is no you-pick part of this lavender farm.Unlike Martha Lane Lavender, there isn't a wide variety of lavender here either, which means that by August you can expect most of the lavender to be gone, with the exception of a small section of the farm that is...more

While visiting area for first time (April 2009), my wife and I finally had a chance to spend the afternoon without the kids. We chose Three Crabs Restaurant because of the many 'raves' we had read about. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. The food was fair, and overpriced. The glass of water they served had a strange, sulfuric smell-and taste. Following our experience, we discovered other diner's reviews which were similar to our own; not very favorable. On a positive note; the restaurant is located in a beautiful site with beautiful views of Dungeness Spit (see photo).
40 miles from Sequim (it's a beautifual drive), is the Hoh Rain Forest. This is the only Rain Forest found on the continent of North America. Find flora and fauna millions of years old! Gorgeous hiking!!!
