Once upon a time Fremont was a hip, funky neighborhood in northwest Seattle. Gentrification has since ironed out some of its quirks (and increased home prices). Nowadays, shiny new condos sit next to its older, modest homes, and tech companies like Microsoft, Adobe, and Google have offices here overlooking the shipping canal.
But if you're looking for lots to do in a neighborhood, Fremont is a good choice since there's always a party somewhere. It's home to several craft breweries, bars, diverse restaurants, galleries, and cool boutiques.
Every year the neighborhood hosts the raucous Fremont Solstice Festival & Parade. The festivities include live music, beer and wine gardens, tons of food trucks, a craft market, and a parade of wildly dressed people, decorated cars and floats, and costumed dogs.
The residents trend slightly younger than most of Seattle and there is a high percentage of singles here.
