Sequim is one of the Best Places to Retire

Sequim WeatherSequim, Washington is one of the most popular retirement destinations on the entire West coast.  Here is an insider’s view of why Sequim is such a wonderful place to live.  I’ll share seven reasons I love Sequim, and why you might love it, too.

1.  Sequim is a beautiful and peaceful community with water views, mountains, and old growth forests;

2.  Sequim has retirement communities, lots and homes built to suit retirees in close proximity to shopping and community activities (but you can also buy a farm or 5 acres outside of town);

3.  Sequim’s school district is one of the best in the country, and the children are all above average (4 of them are mine);

4.  Sequim has an extremely low crime rate, and you’ll feel like you went back in time 30 years;

5.  Sequim doesn’t suffer the traffic nightmares of most cities (do you love the country?);

6.  Sequim has great weather and is popular for its rain shadow, meaning it gets about a third of the rain fall of Seattle; and

7.  Sequim has an amazing variety of recreational activities, such as fishing, boating, bicycling, hiking, flying, marathons, dog shows, farmer’s markets, boat races, bird watching, hikes into the Olympic National Park, skiing at Hurricane Ridge, short ferry rides to Victoria, B.C., horse riding, lavender farms, great motorcycle rides around the Peninsula, more volunteer activies than one can list here, dozens of hobby groups and clubs, and just about anything you can imagine for every age group.
