Seattle - Ballard & Discovery Park (Chapter)
This is the Ballard & Discovery Park chapter from Lonely Planet's Seattle guidebook.
A former seafaring community, with Scandinavian heritage, Ballard still feels like a small town engulfed by a bigger city. Gritty, no-nonsense and uncommercial, it's slowly being developed but remains a good place to down a microbrew or see a band.
- watch birds, fishing boats, motor yachts, kayaks and salmon negotiating Hiram M Chittenden Locks
- make a coffee-and-croissant pilgrimage to local baking legend Cafe Besalu
- leave the city (almost) and explore on foot inside the verdant ocean-side oasis of Discovery Park
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighborhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Neighborhood Walk, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping and Sports & Activities.
