Fremont is a very safe city to live in. It has good schools and a community college as well. The great thing about Fremont is the diversity, many different people from various walks of life and ethnicities live here. The people in Fremont are friendly and helpful. There are many activities for kids, for example: summer camps, Thanksgiving break and winter break camps, as well as the parks and annual festivals. The annual festivals include the Kite festival, which is fantastic for little ones and the Arts and Wine festival, which has activities and booths for kids and parents! Overall, Fremont is a great city to be in, any time of the year!

I moved to Fremont when I was 13 years old. I finished the 8th grade in my the city, while living in Fremont. When high school rolled around, I started at a school a few blocks down from my new home. At first, I did not enjoy being away my familiar environment, but once I opened myself up to Fremont's environment, I began to love it. I met friends and even had more freedom to enjoy the city and hang out with new friends. My mom felt much more giving me freedom in Fremont. It's nice, quiet, clean, and has a lot of business. Overall, Fremont is awesome even with it's growing population. What a place to be!
The Fremont of today is nowhere near as appealing as it was even 10 years ago. It was overdeveloped, and the traffic now is awful. The city of Fremont leaders sold out to developers. Fremont still has some good qualities, but overall it's not that good anymore. The population diversity Fremont once has changed a lot. I'm all for diversity, but the Fremont of today is mostly Indians. Fremont is also very expensive. A little fixer upper home will sell for $700k+. No thanks! It was nice at one time, but those days are long gone. Oh, and there's way more homeless living on the streets of Fremont than at any other time.
