This place is exactly what its name suggests! A wall, rather, an alley full of chewing gum stuck to it! You have to see it to believe it! 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! And, it is a local landmark!

The Gum Wall, Seattle Reviews - Write a Review
Gross but amazing! Make sure you come at a time when they haven't cleaned it. Apparently they clean the wall every so often with powerful water hose. Make sure you don't accidently step on a gum. There is barely anybody at night. Don't worry, the street is lit up with light.
It might be gross for many, but it is still something to see. If you look close, you can see creative uses for the gum on the wall. LOL Everything from people sculpting their gum into words, things, using it to attach cards...Located in an alley right below the Pike Place Market.
Who knew used chewing gum would get its own real estate?! That too in Seattle! Can't say I'm a huge fan of the place, but there's something about it that made me wanna check it out. Used gum is not only stuck on the walls up to heights that'll make you wonder "how? and why?", but also "decorated" along the alley floor as well. It's quite unique. Very close to Pike Place.
We were here on a Saturday afternoon and it was busy. I would say it's a tourist trap but if it's your first time here, you should just check it out anyway. You might have to line up for pics but it does make for a cool Facebook photo.
The Gum Wall is in Post Alley which is a little bit of a steep hill. Went to this gum wall after Pike's Place while on our way to the Seattle Great Wheel. It is 100% worth seeing if you are already in the area. Where else will you see this in your life? Also pretty neat seeing everyone chewing gum around the wall getting ready to leave their mark on Seattle.
