Fremont Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Seattle, Washington community of Fremont has an unofficial slogan, “De Libertas Quirkas” or “freedom to be peculiar.” For this town, peculiar means a giant rocket, a rare statue of Vladimir Lenin, and the Fremont Troll Monument that resides under the Aurora Bridge. The community is alive with culture, art, and history.
Fremont is located north of downtown Seattle, just west of Highway 99 and just north of Salmon Bay, which in turn runs into Lake Union to the east. Fremont is less than a 20-minute drive to downtown Seattle.
