Resting just north of Salmon Bay, Ballard offers a slower-paced, more residential alternative to the core metropolitan area’s bustle. Once a hub for early-Seattle fishing and lumber industries, it has become a cultural hotbed. Whether you’re looking to dine, shop, kick back with a drink, roll with the kids to cruise through the popular Ballard farmers market on Sunday or rock the night away, the options are more plentiful than those salmon migrating up the nearby waters.
