"Ballard is a trendy spot with historic value"

Ballard is a nice area of Seattle that overlooks Salmon Bay and is known as the home of the Ballard Locks, which is a great place to go boating or take an afternoon stroll when the weather is nice. There’s also a variety of restaurants to choice from ethnic popular cuisine like Thai and upscale eateries.

Trendy is the word that comes to mind when describing Ballard with its cafes, shops and pubs there is always something to do and see when in the area. The great thing about this area is that it really has something for everyone here Classic Consignment is just that “classic” with a variety of items and if you’re looking for a rare or used book John Michael Lang Fine Books is the perfect, spot to visit.

But, by far, since I’m a park person the coolest place is Ballard Marvin's Garden, with patio lined with trees and the Ballard Centennial Bell Tower, which marks the beginning of Ballard Avenue Historic District. Or if the historical aspect of this park doesn’t please you Golden Garden Park with its sandy beaches and view of the Olympic Mountains might better suit an afternoon or early evening walk. And for dog lovers the off-leash area is a must visit. There’s also a boat launch and a pier to fish from. All-in-all not a bad place to visit.
