One of Seattle's more unusual tourist attractions, Fremont Troll hides out under the Aurora Bridge. The giant stone sculpture of a troll eating a full-size Volkswagen Beetle was created by a team of local artists led by sculptor Steve Badanes. The mixed-media artwork is made of rebar steel, wire, and reinforced concrete. Though you can have your picture taken standing next to the sculpture, you can also climb on top of it and take a look at its one good eye, made from an ordinary hubcap.

Fremont Troll reviews
The troll is pretty cool to go and see.right in the middle of residential neighborhood.we took an Uber there from the space needle. more »
I mean really - where else are going to see a huge troll under a bridge? I was surprised at just how large it really is. I'm 6'4" and stood on its shoulders and was about the height of the head. Truly interesting and not something you will see elsewhere. I love the uniqueness of this local treat. And we got to see him (it?) with freshly painted nails from a couple days earlier
Public art at it's most-whimsical, fun, and quirky. A great piece of sculpture that begs for a visit, especially if you have children, while in Seattle. There is not a great deal of parking, except on the street, so you may have to walk a block. But, it is worth the effort.
