Day 4: DOWNTOWN SEQUIM & LOCAL CUISINE

To become more acquainted with Sequim, spend the afternoon shopping around town. Unique gift stores are located within walking distance from the center of town (where Sequim Avenue and Washington Street cross).

During your walk, view historic murals that explain how early pioneers shaped the city into what it is today. Drive from mid-town a few blocks east or west and you’ll find additional shops.

After a morning of shopping, enjoy lunch at one of the dozens of restaurants offering traditional American favorites to exquisite international flavors.

After lunch, stop at the Museum & Arts Center, 175 W. Cedar St., to view historical exhibits, art and a display on a mastodon discovered locally. On Saturdays, stop by the Sequim Open Air Market in the downtown where local growers sell fresh produce and artisans sell handcrafted wares.

Take a hike! In the afternoon, enjoy a stroll along one of the area’s many trails to really get an overview of just how beautiful Sequim is.

For a truly unique nature walk, head to the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge to view the Dungeness Spit — the longest natural sand spit in the nation. If the tide permits, stroll 5.5 miles (one way) to the end of the spit to the New Dungeness Lighthouse.

Built in 1857, the lighthouse is one of the oldest in the Northwest and features several intact buildings. Take a snack and bottled water with you and enjoy a beautiful view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca from a picnic table or a piece of driftwood.

Volunteers from the Lighthouse Society take turns staying at the lighthouse and will be happy to show you around. If the 11-mile roundtrip trek to the lighthouse is too much, you can still enjoy strolling along the spit to take in the breathtaking view, which includes waves, driftwood, seabirds and marine life including harbor seals.

 After enjoying time on the Spit, continue exploring the area by strolling along the Olympic Discovery Trail, located between White Feather Way and Port Angeles. Or sooth your tired leg muscles by enjoying a relaxing soak in the whirlpool at Sequim’s Aquatic Recreation Center (SARC).

In addition to these suggested treks, Sequim features three year-round volkssport walks. Maps for the walks can be found at Swain’s Outdoor, 551 W. Washington St.
