I've lived in Ballard since 1976. It was formerly a "sleepy Scandinavian" suburb, which has transformed itself into "destination" neighbor with great public transportation, schools, restaurants and more. Housing is varied with lots of single family neighborhoods, plus newer condo complexes.
Call me for more "local" information--I live here!!!

I live in Ballard and it is definitely the hottest market within Seattle. There has been tons of revitalization and construction going over the last few years. Spectacular natural setting, eclectic and youthful ambiance, charming local stores and now, foodieâ€™s paradise! Are you looking to relocate to Ballard?

CafÃ© Besalu -- their pastry is one of the best in Seattle. I love their Quiche
CaffÃ¨ FiorÃ¨ -- near the Golden Garden. In early weekend morning, I go there to play with dog owners are they are getting coffee before heading to Golden Garden.
Fremont Coffee Company -- Their Latte is very special.
Besides Coffee, Ballard is a very nice walkable neighborhood. It is by the Puget Sound and has a few commercial streets to walk on. The Ballard Lock and Garden (Hiram M. Chittenden Locks and Carl S. English Jr. Botanical Garden) is also in the neighborhood. The public transportation is convenient and the main highway, Highway 99, connects directly to downtown Seattle.
