Located in North West Seattle, Ballard is a little bit maritime-centric enclave and a little bit hip foodie hot spot. The neighborhood is home to a few well known landmarks such as the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks (locally known as the "Ballard Locks"), the Nordic Heritage Museum, the Shilshole Bay Marina, and Golden Gardens Park. Ballard is known for its nightlife and Scandinavian history.
