Washington Lavender Farm and its lavender lane

“Yes, summer is waning…if you’re looking for a last minute road trip idea, consider one of these stellar small towns. Each of these communities has everything you need to have a memorable vacation—from outstanding lodging options, culinary delights, sensational scenery to fun activities.”

Mike’s Road Trip compiled a list of ten small towns that are not to be missed. The towns that made the list are as follows: Whitefish, MT; Port Orford, OR; Lewiston, NY; Taos, NM; Sequim, WA; Bardstown, KY; Walla Walla, WA; Moab, UT; Charlottesville, VA; Mendocina, CA.

Here’s the blurb on Sequim: Sequim, Washington is located in the Olympic Peninsula, or in the northwest part of the state. If you’re familiar with “Dungeness Crab,” Sequim is where they come from. The Dungeness Spit and surrounding park is a great place to explore, hike or camp. Sequim is also well known for its lavender, and associated festival, which photographers will particularly enjoy. There are at least half a dozen top-notch B&B/Inns located at the waters edge overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca and nearby Victoria, Canada, which is just a short ferry ride away.  Also nearby is the famed Olympic National Park, where on a clear day Hurricane Ridge provides views as far as the eye can see.” (from Mike’s Road Trip: “Ten towns not to miss this summer”)
