Tour driver took us by this. Quite interesting. Would not have known of this on our own. Off the beaten path.

I love this community! We spent a half of a day visiting the nice unusual shops and enjoying the beautiful neighborhood. Fremont has a lot of quirky thing to see plus a great chocolate factory.

Just simply wandering about would greet you with a strange art installation on a random house, a troll under a bridge, sculptures on the street and cool lake views. We also stopped at a local brewery to sample the local delights. The locals strike me as friendly & interesting characters who seem proud of their community. We wished we'd had... More

The troll is an amazing work of art that is just plain fun. The huge Lenin statue has historical significance and is right at home in this quirky, unique community. I was sad that the Teriyaki places werfe all closed on Sunday!

The Fremont Troll shows how public art can be fun, transforming and mysterious at once, and more. This is more than another "must see"--it's a must play, climb, contemplate or whatever.

Lots of fun places to eat, brew pubs, the Fremont sculpture at the bridge, the troll under Aurora ave. This is a neighborhood with personality.

This is a cool attraction to see but I would not go out of my way to see it. It is located under a bridge on a steep road where only parallel parking is available, there are also always kids climbing all over this. You can see it from the road without getting out of the car too. It was... More

There a lot to see along Canal Street and in the neighborhood. The Dinos was nice to see, but not the honey bucket and the homeless living around it. Enjoyed the Hi-Tech area with Google, Amazon, and other companies who have established themselves there. The "Dreamer of World Peace" statute makes you hopeful.

I wish I have more time to explore Fremont but I am leaving Seattle soon. This area has a very artistic and sophisticated vibe. It has a giant Lenin statue, Fremont Troll, organic chocolatier, great variety of food, and great cafes. The Woodland Park, rose garden, and Woodland Park Zoo right above it. One can easily lose a whole day... More

Our son has lived in Fremont for over a year and we have visited on several occasions. The area looks to date back to post WWI with plenty of newer infill. It is hilly with several different areas packed with restaurants, pubs, brewpubs, bars, boutiques, yoga studios, etc.. From my vantage point as a "seasoned citizen" it is Millennial heaven!
