About Bubblegum Alley, San Luis Obispo

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.

  • It is what it says it is--an alley covered in gum. Similar to the Pike Place bubblegum alley in Seattle, but only about a quarter of the size. Fun free entertainment. Look but don't touch and add your own wad!

  • Small narrow alley with a ton of gum on the wall. The immediate area is under construction, but its OK in person. The good thing is that there's so much to see out in beautiful SLO.

  • While my husband and I were on a little vacation to Pismo, this was a fun place to stop and visit on our way back home. To see all those gums on the wall was yucky yet fun

  • Do not go out of your way to see this "alley". Likely you will come to the street to check out the businesses anyways and you will likely just passby "Bubble Gum Alley" after a 10 second photo. I went here at night and was glad I did not experience it during a hot sunny day. Hygiene comments aside, this wall is not that interesting, there's not much that can be said about a wall filled with chewed bubble gum; would you want spend your vacation going out of your way to look at trash?

  • Was a great stop on the way home. The kids thought it was so cool..adults did to in a gross kind of way :)
