Welcome to Sequim, Washington

Even though the city is fairly close to some of the wettest temperate rainforests of the contiguous United States, the average rainfall is about the same as Los Angeles, California. Westerra Homes chose the beautiful setting of Sequim for it’s headquarters due to the climate anomaly often referred to as “the blue hole.” Fogs and cool breezes from the Juan de Fuca Strait make Sequim’s environment more humid than would be expected from the low average annual precipitation.
