Fremont is Seattle shrunk down into one small parcel. Quirky, trendy, and very impressed with it's own goofiness Fremont has a troll, a statue of Lenin, microbreweries, cutting edge restaraunts and true local flavor. Hard to park but fun to walk Fremont will open your mind to what a unique neighborhood really looks like.

Prepare yourself for a charming quirky neighborhood. Bring your camera, walk 34,35,and 36 street, the waterfront, and stop to see the troll under the bridge. The restaurants are many and varied. And as always there are many coffee shops, breweries and places to sit and people watch.

A friend of mine brought me along to the Fremont Summer Solstice festival, and it is brilliant. We were not in there early enough for the naked bicycle ride, which apparently takes place in the morning, but we got in for the parade. It was just great. Loads of people, all in a festive mood, and afterwards concert and beer... More

I had read about the Fremont Sunday Market and wanted to check it out. I ended up spending the entire afternoon wandering around Fremont! I thoroughly enjoyed the market with the hand crafted items and food trucks. I found the statue of Lenin and the Troll and enjoyed a nice lunch on the deck of one of the many restaurants.... More

Visited on New Year's Day, and not many shops were open. We still had a great time walking around checking out public art. The troll was a fun stop, and the park-like area down the street but also under the aurora bridge was beautiful. The PCC is a good place to stop for a snack, and not overly expensive. The... More

We spent one night in a hostel in Fremont and explored the area on foot. There are some quirky things worth seeing in this part of town. We picked up a walking guide to Fremont that provided the locations of all the art installations in Fremont. We had a rental car, but since it was Sunday, we were able to... More

The troll under the bridge, the giant statue of Lenin, the naked bicyclists in the parade, how good does it get? We are from Montana and it is fun to get to the city. This is a funky part of a funky city and great fun. Great places to eat, to see, to walk about. We have to visit the... More

Last time I was here was for the Solstice Parade in June so a revisit in the Autumn with my wife was somewhat different. The feel of the area was somewhat quieter although still very attractive and well worth the time. Visited the Lenin statue and Troll as well as walking to the Centre of the Universe and visiting several... More

Fremont is full of sculpture, artistic vibes, interesting restaurant and a cool chocolate factory. If you go there, make sure to take one of the "Fremont by walk brochure" as you will enjoy the principal attraction of this place. There are a really nice turkish restaurant "cafe Turko" if you are hungry as the food is excellent and the price... More

I loved visiting this neighbour hood. We were lucky and were there on a day when they had the market and a doggie costume competition. This is a lively, funky and fun side trip when your in the Seattle area, I was suprised how short of a drive it was from downtown Seattle. I think only 10 min or so.... More
