Hotels in Fremont

Fremont Details

Approximately 26,000 people live in Fremont, the county seat of Dodge County in eastern Nebraska. The town is famous for having been an important part of the Mormon Trail. This was an established route for settlers from 1830 to the 1860s, and it provided a regular traffic flow into the town, making it a popular tourist stop even then. Today, tourists can find more comfortable routes to travel, and certainly more comfortable hotels in Fremont (even the cheap hotels) than were available then, by checking here at town wasn’t actually founded until 1856, but its role as a stopping point for travelers meant that it was part of the first transcontinental telegraph, railroad, and highway in the US. Today, the Old Lincoln Highway still exists, with some of the original brick used in areas of the road’s surface. Many modern visitors come to Fremont for Splash Station, a $5 million water park that opened in 2007. If you’d prefer a free way to spend a day outdoors, try one of the 21 public parks in town.
