If you’re looking for picturesque outdoor recreation, upscale shopping and dining, or endless culture, Fremont delivers on all accounts. Fremont is rich with history ranging from Spanish-developed Mission San Jose to the Niles Canyon Railway, both of which have become famous landmarks that are the city’s pride and joy.
