Doporučuje 413 místních ·
A boat lock system with an underwater view of a fish ladder. A hot spot for mating blue herons and on the way to the beach at Golden Gardens.
Watch the salmon climb the ladder. Watch the boats go from fresh water out to the sound. It’s amazing and one of the oldest parts of Seattle.
An interesting and educational facet of Seattle culture/history, the Ballard Locks offer a different type of sightseeing.
Great visit for a first-time visitors. During certain times of the year, you can see salmons migrating via artificial fish ladder.
Visit during Summer and on weekends. It’s free. The locks will have boats line up and water level will go down and up like an elevator for boats.
Amazing to watch the ships pass through the locks. An amazing Fish ladder and beautiful grounds. Free outdoor concerts in the summer.
A unique Seattle experience—watching boats transfer between the Sound and the ship canal. Plus you can often catch sights of seals and migrating fish.
Cool to see how the locks work, especially for kids. Worth a visit if you’re planning to be nearby. Free.
Ballard locks is a great location to watch boats and fish make their way from the Puget sound to Lake Washington. Just a 10 minute drive from home
These historic locks have been operating for over 100 years connecting boats between Lake Union/Lake Washington and the Puget Sound. Be sure to check out the salmon elevator while you're there.

“The Fremont Troll was made famous by the movie “Ten Things I Hate About You”. This massive troll lives under the Aurora Bridge in the Fremont District. He holds a an old VW Beetle in his left hand. In the area there’s shops and restaurants for you to enjoy. Although parking can be a little difficult it’s worth the short walk to see the troll under the bridge.”

“You can't come to Seattle and not visit Pike Place! They have beautiful flowers year round, fresh fish, live music, and lots of vendors. If you want to have a fish thrown over your head, just purchase any fish from the Pike Place Fish Market. ”
