"The most colorful street in Seattle"
Fremont Ave. North runs south from the Woodland Park Zoo to the northeast corner of Queen Anne hill. Mostly residential until the last couple of blocks, it's those two blocks that make it memorable. Fremont is known as the art capitol of Seattle, competing in eccentricity with Broadway on Capitol Hill. Some of Seattle's best pubs and shops are found here and, once a year, the parade that makes people take notice. The annual Freemont Fair isn't for the faint of heart, but it's so much fun for participants of all ages. Fremont isn't an inexpensive place to live, but art-y places that get recognized usually skyrocket in price (look at SoHo in NYC). The neighborhoods are incredibly friendly and community oriented and, depending on your tastes, rivals the nightlife of Pioneer Square.
