Our Ballard Neighborhood Guide
In this peaceful residential and commercial enclave just north of Downtown Seattle, anything and everything you could want is within easy walking distance. The residents of the Ballard neighborhood – a vibrant blend of post-college kids, young families and longtime locals – bring plenty of distinct personality to the crowds at brunch as well as the numerous nighttime watering holes. Public art installations and a gritty, post-industrial history mixed with modern artistic sensibilities give this Seattle neighborhood its plentiful charm. And if you are staying with us over a Sunday, don’t miss the Farmer’s Market on picturesque Ballard Ave.
Over the past several decades, the Ballard neighborhood has grown from a sleepy Norwegian fishing village to a hopping destination with fantastic restaurants and a variety of unique boutique shops, in an aesthetically pleasing setting that is incredibly walkable and family-friendly. With a love of food and art at its heart, and a youthful upstart attitude, Ballard makes for an authentic Seattle experience for anyone traveling to our beautiful city! Even better: if you have family or friends in the immediate area, our well-appointed vacation rentals nearby allow you to stay conveniently close to them without sacrificing easy proximity to the unique attractions of the Emerald City!
