The Dungeness River Audubon Center was the first Audubon center in Washington State. It is the only Audubon center with a Native American tribe as partner and the only center located by a salmon-spawning river. The River Center hosts spectacular exhibits of local birds and wildlife and provides on-site environmental programs for adults and children.
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. Many farms are open for u-pick in the summer months and several are open throughout the year.
Near the tip of the spit sits the New Dungeness Lighthouse, one of the oldest in the Northwest operating continuously since 1857. Although the last lighthouse keeper was withdrawn in 1994, the lighthouse is now maintained by the New Dungeness Light Station Association. Check the tide reports before you go as high tides can make it difficult to reach the lighthouse.
In May 2014, Sequim was named a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists. The designation is determined by the City’s commitment to improving conditions for bicycling through investment in bicycling promotion, education programs, infrastructure and pro-bicycling policies.
For mountain biking enthusiasts, the Olympic National Forest (ONF) has hundreds of roads suitable for mountain biking. Access is available at trailheads on Palo Alto Road (east of Sequim) and Taylor Cutoff Road (west of Sequim). Parking permits and ONF regulations on where you may bike are required and are available at the Sequim Visitor Center.
Sequim’s dry, sunny weather make it a popular golf destination. Great views of the Olympic Mountains; sequoia, fir, and cedar trees; lush fairways; immaculate greens; and even a crab-shaped sand trap await you at area golf courses.
The Olympic Game Farm worked exclusively for Walt Disney Studios for 28 years and the farm’s animal actors have been featured in the Grizzly Adams television and movie series, The Incredible Journey, Charlie the Lonesome Cougar, and more.

Railroad Bridge Park, at the heart of the Olympic Discovery Trail, showcases the Railroad Bridge built in 1915 by the Milwaukee Road. From 1915 to 1980 the Milwaukee Road operated the rail line, which transported passengers and timber, from Port Townsend to Port Angeles and west to connect with several logging railroads. The line was abandoned in 1985.
I was shocked at how nice this place is. Yes, the rooms are small, but the price is also small. This is the best value motell I’ve ever stayed at out of hundreds.
The owners of this hotel are very sweet. SEQUIM is a small, quaint town and the motel has a beautiful view of the Olympic Nat Park mtn range. The room is small but clean with everything you need, they even provided 2 bananas, 2 packs of trail mix and 2 Starbucks coffees free of charge.
