There are so many great neighborhoods in Seattle and they are constantly changing!  The only way to truly keep up is to spend some time exploring and asking friends who live, work, or spend time there.  We had a blast learning more about Fremont over the past couple of weeks.  Big thank you to our friends who gave us their insider tips!!

Overall, Fremont is artistic, unconventional, centrally located, high-spirited, home to tourist attractions, hip local restaurants, great coffee shops, unique shops, street markets, festivals, and a whole lot of fun!
