Free, Quirky/offbeat, Family-friendly, Off the beaten path

Only a neighborhood as thoroughly quirky as Fremont would have an actual troll located under a bridge, and the 18-foot concrete one under the Aurora Bridge does not disappoint. The sculpture, installed in the early 1990s, is of a monster's head and shoulders, with one hand grasping a Volkswagen Beetle (Fremont clearly takes their quirkiness seriously). Though vandals picked the site's one-time time capsule clean, it's otherwise fairly clean of graffiti and trash, thanks to invested locals.
