Fremont is a great place to spend an afternoon, especially on a Sunday then they have the weekly market. It's a chill place to come together with locals and shop a variety of vendors before checking out some of the really cool independent boutiques in the area. Add in some unique art pieces, some interesting characters and a calm walk... More

We walked through Fremont, but other than the Troll and the sign that you are at the center of the universe, I didn't see a lot that would draw me back. We had a tough time finding someplace for dinner. I didn't feel like there were a lot of options. We saw a couple of statues and a rocket on... More

The Fremont neighborhood is home to a huge concrete troll, topiary dinosaurs, a larger than lifesize statue of Lenin, a rocket, the Theo Chocolate Factory and several other interesting attractions. Well worth spending a few hours walking around it!

Spend a morning or afternoon at Fremont. I spent this morning having my own walking-tour with the different art installation at Fremont. Take a copy of "the Walking Guide to Fremont" at any information kiosk in Seattle. It is a map with eateries and the different worthy-checking out sights. It is easy to find and walkable. Moreover, I ended the... More

If you are visiting Seattle, it is worth seeking out the Troll under the bridge. It is part of the funky Seattle (before things got so "correct.")

We loved the quaint little area of Fremont. It was as though we went back in time for awhile. If I come back to Seattle again, I plan on spending more time in Fremont and Ballard.

Love hitting up Fremont when I visit (used to live here), because you can grab lunch, walk the canal, grab coffee, peruse shops and antique stores, etc.. Going to the weekend open market would be a bonus. Say hello to the Troll for me, too!

On your way to Ballard, stop in Fremont. Enjoy some chocolate at Theo's and then hit up the Mischief distillers.

We took the bus to Fremont from downtown in order to visit Theo's Chocolate Factory. The bridge went "up" for a passing ship so that was fun to see. We visited the Theo store and bought some chocolate. We walked the ship channel trail which was pretty and saw the dinosaur topiary. There are multiple "sights" like an orca fiberglass... More
