Went to see the Fremont Troll during our girl's weekend. It was neat. Nothing spectacular. But I would recommend stopping while in town just to see what it's all about.

This is one of those tacky touristy things but was glad I saw it. Haha! It is free. Actually saw him on the way to a Lake Union tour.

The Fremont Troll brings a smile to everyone that visits. This site is enormous and that is part of the fun while visiting. An off the beaten path must see.

It was an interesting design. Not such a big deal to me but part of the Seattle City Tour, so if yo take the tour you will definitely see the troll. Worth a picture anyway

Skip the downtown flare and checkout Freemont. The troll if big and downtown also hosts a Stalin Statue from when the Soviet Union fell. Also check out the rocket and crazy downtown shops.

Visited the Fremont troll on our recent visit to Seattle. It was a quick stop to see this quirky and fun art installation under the George Washington memorial bridge. Plenty of parking nearby. Fun to climb on the troll and take pictures.

No light rail but there are Metro routes that run close by. Visit King County Metro Trip Planner for more detailed route information. (URL's not allowed here{hypertext transfer protocol colon slash slash tripplanner dot... More
