Calling all cocktail (and spirits) lovers! This two-and-a-half-hour walking tour of Seattle's Fremont neighbourhood is a fun, boozy adventure through art-laden streets, historical canals and fascinating local sights and landmarks. Try some enticing spirits and cocktails along the way and fall in love with this creative district. Start your tour by trying a couple of signature craft cocktails in the heart of Fremont – sometimes referred to as ‘The Artists’ Republic of Fremont’, this bohemian neighbourhood on the north bank of the canal is known for its quirky outdoor art installations, groovy bars and eateries and locally run indie shops. As you learn why this area is referred to as ‘The Center of the Universe’, your tour might just take you under the nose of the enormous statue of Vladimir Lenin – your tour guide can explain how this rather unusual piece of art landed in the heart of Fremont and the controversy it has sparked over the years. During your walk, witness the channel of water that runs under the Aurora Bridge and spot the expansive Lake Union, which connects to Salmon Bay and Puget Sound via the Lake Washington Ship Canal. Your tour guide will fill you in on the history of the canal and its importance to the development of the Fremont neighbourhood. As you wind your way through these beautiful urban streets, be enticed by the historical building of the Theo Chocolate factory and fill your nose with the smells of cocoa. You might want to tour the chocolate factory and stock up on some delicious souvenirs before or after this tour. Check out some of the other curious art installations in the area, such as The Fremont Rocket and other space-themed installations and learn about their background. As you walk along the riverside trail, watch out for the rowers and kayakers passing you by, as you discover the local park. Culminate your experience with an array of tastings of different spirits, which are made right here in the Pacific Northwest! From various signs with advice like ‘set your watch back five minutes’ and ‘throw your watch away’, to the general bohemian vibe of the district, you’ll soon find lots of reasons to fall in love with eccentric Fremont (cocktails aside!).We reserve the right to change both the route and places visited within the tour.
