Visited the gum wall with friends while touring pike place markets. A curious site, make sure you get gum in advance to chew.

Why visit this place? It's a big area covered in a crazy load of gum, but after that I felt that I wasted my time visiting this area. I'm a pass and wish I was before.

Grossly interesting when we stumbled upon this the first time. Now I try to avoid this. Yuck. No desire to see it or add to it. Yuck.

This is disgustingly cool! Tip: to get here, go down the staris inside the public market, right to fish trowing place. Take pictures in it, just dont touch it!!

Kids and I loved it!!!! Bring your own gum... Some shops charge a big more for it and you don't want sugar free gum for this experience. We left our mark and took loads of photos. Fun and different experience for sure.

So much fun to see, we posted pictures and contributed to the massive wall of gum! Very interesting place, and interesting story. Also Pikes Place is just right there too so you get to shop and explore all at the same time!

I can't tell you how many years I had lived in the Puget Sound area before I found the Gum Wall!! I have a picture of it as a wallpaper for my iPad.

A few alleyway walls on lower level of Pike Place Market dedicated to chewed gum? Moms- don't bother. Send your kids with dad while you stay upstairs to see & smell colorful bouquets of lovely flowers. Its wet, dark and packed with...germs. Certainly not what Seattle should be known for.

I can handle many forms of artistic expression, this is just plain revolting. I was totally skeeved and just prayed I wouldn't end up with someone expectorated art on my shoes.
