Seattle - Ballard & Discovery Park (PDF Chapter)
This is the Ballard & Discovery Park chapter from Lonely Planet’s Seattle guidebook.
Though just a bridge away from its big metro brother, Ballard is probably the most distinct and independent of Seattle’s neighborhoods, with its self-contained music and drinking scene here and a tangible neighborhood identity.
