Hiram Chittenden locks and canal (Wikipedia)

The Hiram M. Chittenden Locks located in Ballard provide a link for boats between the saltwater of the Puget Sound and the fresh water of the Ship Canal connecting to Lake Union and Lake Washington.

Dinner at Ivar’s on Pier 54.

The Northwest dining legacy that is Ivar’s began in 1938 with one very entrepreneurial spirit, the late Ivar Haglund.

His future in music and entertaining took a slight detour when his waterfront aquarium needed a venue to feed its guests. Using his classic Northwest seafood recipes, Ivar’s was born.
