We are not saying you would love it or be fascinated on seeing it, but if you are in search of some off the beaten path tourist attraction, the Gum Wall should be on your list!

The Gum Wall, Seattle Reviews

  • Hard to find, but impossible to forget. As you walk into the alley, it’s kind of like a Disney experience because it smells strongly of bubble gum! Both walls are covered. I think they come scrape the gum off every few years because there didn’t seem to be as much gum as I’d seen in pictures. Fun to visit, but only gives an experience that is entertaining for a few minutes. Worth stopping by if you are checking out Pike Place market.

  • A quirky colorful tourist stop you can add your own gum to. Gross? Cool? Decide for yourself. Walls were cleaned in the last couple years to preserve the brick and quickly refilled with gooey greatness. Worth the effort to locate!

  • Fun and gross all at the same time! Since it’s right near Pikes Market, I would highly recommend just walking over to at least take a look. If you’re feeling highly adventurous, I may even dare you to chew a piece of gum and stick it to the surface of something in that area. But chewer beware, it’s really gross...bring hand sanitizer!

  • I think this is a must visit quick tourist spot for everyone who visit Seattle, simply for how bizarre and unusual it is. Make sure to bring a pack a bubblegum and start chewing before you go there! You can stick your gum in the wall, stretch it to make a letter or do more than one for a word, or even bring a small picture or business card and stick it to the wall with gum. You can get as creative as you want.

  • The famous gum wall! My first time ever seeing this and I’ve been to Seattle so many times. The Wall has thousands of gum stuck on it with different colors which makes it look like art. Also make for a great picture background. The alley smells like gum! When you get up close and personal it’s disgusting but really looks colorful and pretty :). and I am still interested to know how this wall came to be. I’d make this a place to see if you have little ones and teens they seemed to enjoy it. Everyone loves to see interesting places like this. I’d say it’s definitely a tourist stop.
