Hurricane Ridge: It’s easy for one to forget they’re only miles away from town when exploring Hurricane Ridge. Skiers are drawn to downhill and cross-country routes, hikers to the variety of trails past crystal lakes and through backcountry. Wildlife is abundant, as are the summit’s 360º views.

Lunch: Sequim
Lavender farms: The area is renowned for Lavender farms with year-round lavender indulgences; gifts, plants, u-pick bouquets, farm tours and culinary delights with lavender flavors. The peak of lavender growth is June through August. The Lavender Festival is the third week of July each year.

Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge and the 1857 Dungeness Lighthouse: Dungeness Spit is one of the longest natural sand spits in the world and a wonderful spot to view large concentrations of waterfowl and harbor seals. Be sure to check out the much-adored New Dungeness Lighthouse at the tip of Dungeness Spit near Sequim.
