San Luis Obispo has an attraction which is unique, weird yet one just can’t ignore it. And the attraction is the oh so popular Bubblegum Alley! Once a landmark of rivalry between the students of San Luis Obispo High School and California Polytechnic State University, the alley is 15 foot high and 70 foot long and is located in the 700 block of Higuera Street in SLO. The alley has featured in several films and television shows. In addition, many poets and authors have described this alley in their respective creations. While some find it disgusting, others are totally okay with it! Overall, a place which is miles apart from museums and religious places, but still is worth visiting.

Bubblegum Alley , San Luis Obispo Reviews - Write a Review

  • This place is exactly as it sounds, an alley with tons of new and decrepit pieces of gum attached to either wall. Lots of designs left by chewers along with pictures and notes attached by gum. Fun place to come and leave your own memento.

  • The Quintessence of Teen Spirit, in physical form, is this unified effort to cover a wall with saliva and rubber by the youthfully proud and aspartame-loving kids of SLO.

  • This place is a staple in our community. I came as a kid and loved recently taking my boyfriend to gross him out. He was thoroughly disgusted, so job well done. Love it here!

  • Gross and intriguing at the same time. It literally is an alley! With bubblegum on both sides. Great fit photo opportunities.

  • Five stars. There's bubblegum on the walls. Yay!
