Located in the northeast of Seattle, Ballard is one of the trendiest areas in the region. Explore hip new restaurants, local craft breweries and bars, and even a sandy beach. During the sunny months, locals travel to Golden Gardens Park to soak up the sun, play volleyball, or just enjoy the scenic views. On Sundays, enjoy the local Farmers’ Market, with a fantastic array of food vendors, farmers, florists, and local goods. For food fanatics, Ballard is the place for you. One of the hot spots is The Walrus and the Carpenter, a local oyster bar. It has a cool brick patio, rustic charm, and decadent cocktails. For the beer lovers, stop by Reuben’s Brews, Stoup Brewing, or Populuxe Brewing, for a great brew on tap and relaxing atmosphere. From food to shopping to waterfront activities, Ballard is one of Seattle’s greatest treasures.
