“statue of lenin”(27 reviews)
“public art”(13 reviews)
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.

Our young cousin told us we needed to visit the troll under the Fremont Bridge. My husband’s Aunt and Uncle have lived in Seattle more than 50 years and they’ve never seen it (it’s not 50 years old - but you get the idea). The...More

Nice area with lots of cute shops and restaurants. Where else can you be parking your car and spot a troll?

Yep, there is a troll under the bridge. There are also some good places to eat. There really isn't a whole lot to do there except eat and see the sites. But it's a good bucket list visit.

It was great fun to see the TROLL under the bridge and learn about the area's care for the structure after seeing this guy in several movies. Cool area and definitely interesting art scene.

It's one of the Seattle landmark. You can drive by, walk by, but it's a statue formed with cement so worth a look once, but not sure it's worth a constant visit.
