    Ballard, is another must see while in Seattle, if you have access to a car or take a bus. It is home to the Ballard Locks, where Salmon swim upstream for spawning via a fish ladder that was cleverly designed as part of the lock system. Weekends are a good time to boat watch as there are some fabulous watercraft that are docked on Lake Union. Take a picnic and stroll the grounds adjacent to the locks for a relaxing lunchtime.
    Author JA Jance calls Seattle home part of the year, spending the other part in Arizona. Her JP Beaumont series is located in Seattle and those familiar with her novels enjoy spotting local landmarks called out in her books.
    Numerous day trips around the Puget Sound might convince you to spend more than a weekend in the Seattle area. Skagit Valley is home to a fabulous tulip festival every spring, and Snoqualomie Falls are a refreshing hike to the falls in the ‘heat’ of summer. Plus, there are a couple of good sports venues in Seattle if the Mariners, or Seahawks are playing. I’m looking forward to going back.

      Hi Cynthia! Thanks for the notes — all of that sounds amazing. I’ve heard the Ballard Locks are really cool 🙂

🚨 Now sharing all of my favorite hotels in one spot! 🚨
I have thousands of articles on my travel blog, which is great, but can understandably feel overwhelming if you’re looking for something specific like hotel recommendations.

Which is why I’m super excited to let you know that I created a Travel Shop on the Expedia App where I’ll be sharing curated Collections from my travels to over 75 countries, with my favorite hotel stays, my own bucket list hotels, and getaway recommendations like “the best hotels for a girlfriend getaway”.

It’s so easy to navigate — you can book directly from the Expedia App or save to your profile for a future trip.

I’m working on adding Collections for everywhere I’ve traveled, so be sure to bookmark my Expedia Travel Shop so you can easily reference all of my hotel recommendations in one place.

I’m so excited to share that @the_baby_abroad family travel blog is now live! 👶🏼✈️
I’ll be sharing countless articles addressing the most common travel questions I got throughout my pregnancy, Oliver’s early travels, and now that he’s a BUSY toddler.

Of course, I’ll also be sharing all of my tips for flying with a little one, airline reviews (with kids in mind), comprehensive travel guides on the destinations we’ve traveled as a family, honest product reviews, and everything in between.

But what I’m most excited about is that this will be a community resource with tons of guest authors. Raising a child is such a unique experience for every family, and I personally love to see how ALL types of families travel.

My hope is that The Baby Abroad will become a resource that represents all types of families exploring the world with their kids at every stage of life.
I couldn’t be more excited about this new adventure, and I hope you’ll follow along @the_baby_abroad! #thebabyabroad
