Things to do on Your Visit
Enjoy a  really good meal!  The restaurant options in Sequim continue to expand.  In the past year an italian restaurant, a kebob house, a seafood bar, and a tap room have all opened in downtown Sequim.  These new establishments join the rich array of farm to table restaurants and diverse ethnic offerings already in Sequim.  Bring your appetite, because you'll want to visit them all. 

Sequim has a wide variety of dining options to fit every appetite. Tedesco's Fresh Italian opened late 2017.
