Travel Tuesday: Ballard Staycation

One small silver lining of this difficult year that has been decidedly light on travel is that we’ve had the opportunity to better familiarize ourselves with the place that we call home.

Luckily the Emerald City has no shortage of vibrant little neighborhoods to explore, each one overflowing with its own personality! Take Ballard, for example, where Jennifer Sura spent a lovely afternoon enjoying an outdoor brunch (which included some bone-warming tortilla soup), shopping at some small businesses, and grabbing a cup of joe from one of our beloved local coffee shops. Click along in the gallery below for some wintry staycation inspiration!

We are all really missing travel right now, which means it’s the perfect time for us to partner with Steller, a travel storytelling platform where everyone can come together to discover and share incredible experiences from the world’s coolest places. Every Tuesday we’ll bring you a Steller story from the greater PNW, as there’s no time like the present to celebrate the beauty of your own back yard. Whether you need some travel inspo for the future or a little eye candy, check out these sweet PNW stories! Download Steller now at
