Ballard was originally a rowdy Scandinavian maritime village and railroad town. At one time it was the largest city in King County. Today Ballard is one of the most trendy and popular neighborhoods in Seattle. Although the neighborhood has changed quite a bit, Ballard’s Scandinavian character can still be seen and felt. The neighborhood is located in the Northwest corner of the city between two bodies of water. Shilshole Bay to the west and Salmon Bay to the south.
