This is the Mardi Gras of Seattle! So much going on - the Craft Market, the Music Festival, street performers and parades. There is the historic Solstice Parade with Mardi Gras like bands and floats - and the dog parade, on Sunday, with costumes galore - and then there is the freewheeling Solstice Cyclist Parade which starts off the festivities...

Built under a bridge as part of an art contest winning submission, this unique attraction wa pointed out to us by our tour guide. Jump out of the car, climb the troll, snap a photo, the. Take the bridge directly back to downtown Seattle.

We passed this Troll underneath a bridge in Fremont as part of our City Tour. It was a most unusual sculpture, very artistic and imaginative built of Concrete and looks part of the bridge. Its huge and looks quite menacing. Its eye is a hub cap from a VW Beetle and its Right hand is gripping a VW Beetle car... More

We enjoyed visiting the Fremont district. It's a very hip/trendy area right now - lots of shops, diners, etc. I enjoyed our time in Fremont, and I would recommend the drive over.

Was a nice stop to see the Fremont Troll. Interesting sculpture and free to visit. Seattle is expensive so it was nice to do an activity without a charge. Fremont is a great town to explore so you can do both.

So if you want to see the other crazy and quirky side of Seattle - go a couple miles north (you can actually walk there, Seattle is very pedestrian friendly. Another good... More

Fremont is a neighborhood north of downtown Seattle that is known for shops, food and companies like Google. But there is also a lot of quirky, unique art in the area. Find a free map right next to the building that has a missile on it -- yes, a missile. There are tile murals, a statue of Lenin, a piece... More
