Just north of the Queen Anne neighborhood, across the canal that connects Lake Union to the Shilshole Bay, lies Ballard, rich in Scandinavian history and maritime culture. Although it’s fairly residential, Ballard does carry the bustle of a seaside town, with attractions like the Nordic History Museum, Ballard Locks, Golden Gardens park (right on the coast), and several local breweries, including Maritime Pacific and and Stoup. Like the rest of the region, Ballard is filled with shops and restaurants offering a taste of the local culture. Rentals here range from full homes to small complexes to luxury apartments.
