The statue of Lenin on the corner should clue you in to the fact that everything about this neighborhood is alternative. Vegetarian cafes, eclectic shops, coffee houses, bookstores and street artists abound.

A group of scientists declared Fremont to be the Center of the Universe. For such a declaration, there has to be something here that separates it from other places....the Fremont troll, a rocket that Fremonters sent into actual space, a statue of Lenin complete with...More

I grew up in Seattle and I'm not sure I could say this is any kind of attraction. Nobody actually makes it a point to go see this thing. It's just a bunch of leftover cement the freeway contractors dumped illegally some 40+ years ago....More

Although out of the way, visiting the Fremont troll reminds me that art can be funky and for the people and fun!

This is the troll from the movie "10 things I Hate About You" with Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger. The troll has a VM beetle in his left hand. It is a cool place to take pics, pretty neat and quick little stop.

We were pleased to notice that this town had much more to offer than merely just a troll hiding under a big bridge.

This neighborhood of Seattle has plenty of character. Lots of local eateries. We visited the Fremont troll statue under the Fremont bridge--look for the Volkswagen incorporated in this art piece. Local favorites: JP Ptches and Gertude have their own statue. Don't miss the Stalin statue....More

We stayed in the Hotel Hotel Hostel. Fabulous decision by my husband. Fremont is quirky and not millenialified (is that a word) like Ballard etc. Really a fun, walkable, accessible place to stay. Great restaurants and watering holes. The Sunday market was an added bonus.
