"Wildly original, Fremont Place typifies Seattle charm."
From Fremont Place, one can get a sense for the wacky blend of people that embody Seattle. At the heart of the street lies a statue of Lenin, yes, from the Soviet Union! Right next door is a fantastic gelato place, and kitchy little boutiques/clothing stores. The nightlife on the street is great, with acts of all kinds playing music at places like The High Dive, Tost, and Nectar Lounge. Just up the street, every Sunday sees an outdoor market, full of crafters and junk peddlers.
