Quaint up-and-coming neighborhood. Enjoy walking on the streets, shopping, and enjoy the restaurants and the Sunday farmers market.

Ballard is steeped in Nordic tradition and now it's a trendy hot spot for boutiques, restaurants, and bars. Enjoy the Farmer's Market on Sundays, shop along the avenue and explore a little of Seattle History at the Ballard Locks or Nordic Museum.
