Finding the Gym

If going by bus, catch the lines 29 or 40 and exit at the Leary Ave NW & NW Vernon Pl bus station, which is just across the street.

Located on the northwest waterfront of Seattle, Ballard is a perfect alternative for those who want to get away from the downtown craze. It was established by the Scandinavian immigrants in 1800 and still houses some of the historic warehouses and other buildings. Today they are turned into pubs and local breweries, where you can taste some of their most iconic beers. The Ballard Locks are also one of the hotspots in the neighborhood. There you can see ships navigating towards Puget Sounds as well as the massive salmons fighting their way through the ever-changing currents. A few minutes away, you can check the Nordic Heritage Museum that celebrates the Nordic ancestry of the area, through historic items and family-friendly cultural events.
We all know Seattle as the music center so the rich nightlife of this district is certainly not surprising. Live music can be enjoyed almost every day of the week, in the clubs, bars, and pubs scattered across the whole area. When you’re not exploring the culture or a handicraft drink, you should definitely save some time for shopping. Ballard is packed with local shops, that offer everything from clothes to home decor. Once you’re done with exploring, have dinner at one of the classic neighborhood restaurants, such as the Delancey pizza place or the Brimmer & Heeltap gastropub.
