Roadside Attractions

Seattle is known as the city of neighborhoods and it seems each ‘hood has its own quirky roadside attraction. Here are our five favorites to check out with Fido.
CityDog Magazine
1. Fremont Troll Despite its name, the 18-foot Fremont Troll has been lurking under the north end of the Aurora Bridge at North 36th Street, delighting visitors since 1990.

2. Waiting for the Interurban Since 1979, just north of the Fremont Bridge, the Interurban’s six cast aluminum figures (including a dog) have stood waiting for a bus that never arrives. But, as they wait they are subject to frequent -- and encouraged -- “art attacks,” oft festooned in ribbons and tees.

3. Hat n’ Boots This famous landmark was once part of a cowboy-themed gas station built in the 1950s. The Hat n’ Boots have since been fully restored and relocated to Oxbow Park in Georgetown.

4. Statue of Liberty This 8-foot replica of the Statue of Liberty was originally installed by the Boy Scouts of America and the City of Seattle over fifty years ago. It recently received a much-needed restoration and is located at the far west end of Alki Beach in West Seattle.

5. Statue of Jimi Hendrix This bronze statue of rock legend Jimi Hendrix (a Seattle native), is located in front of the corporate offices of AEI Music Networks on Broadway Avenue north of Pine Street in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.
