Life is good at the Center of the Universe. Fremont, arguably Seattle’s most eclectic neighborhood, boasts artists and walkability and hipsters and character. A lot of character. This is the home of the Fremont Troll and the seven-ton Lenin statue. The home of microbreweries, the home of Nirvana’s Bleach recording, and the home of the Solstice Parade.
This is the Center of the Universe, a.k.a. the People’s Republic of Fremont, a.k.a. the Artists’ Republic of Fremont. No matter your preferred nickname, the unofficial motto fits: De Libertas Quirkas. Freedom to be Peculiar.
Young singles and pre-children couples fill the neighborhood, but you’ll find a smattering of families, too. Because in Fremont, quirkiness doesn’t come at the expense of respectability. Google, Adobe Systems, Sporcle, and many other tech companies keep offices in Fremont. Restaurants include the budget-friendly (Dick’s, takeout Thai), but don’t forget the upscale places like RockCreek’s seafood and Agrodolce’s Italian food. And on the real estate end, Fremont has some absolutely stunning homes. Here are some pictures from one of our current listings:
The simple answer: as long as you can enjoy a little eccentricity, you’ll probably love Fremont. Everyone else does.
