Everyone must stop by this wall of gum while in Seattle and Pike's Place Market. Make sure you are chewing some gum to contribute to the wall! There were all sorts of tourists there taking pictures, but you can make that happen for your crew, too.

Needed to go under the Pike Market to see this odd alley... Definitely do during the day as its kind of creepy. Looks somewhat like a large Jackson Pollock graffiti painting - but when you realize it's just chewing gum stuck to the wall - it's seems somewhat disgusting. If you're visiting Seattle like we were, you gotta see it... More

In the alley behind the Pikes Place Market is a few hundred foot wall adorned by chewed gums of all colors, shapes, and styles. Artistic and gross in it's own way. People just looking, and others adding to the wall. Interesting as long as your in the Market area.

In planning time in Seattle with family, I decided to include this passage in our itinerary just "for the guys". Actually, the women enjoyed it as much as the men. Who would think such a place would exist in Seattle, Washington! The entire wall is so well done with so many extras as the enlarged spits of gum and a... More

Maybe not for everyone, but I found it so artistic and interesting. The setting feels European and fun. A wonderful mix of color. Not just the gum, which is a kaleidoscope of colors and texture but the graffiti which adds more dimension and interest. Again, maybe not for everyone, but I couldn't help adding a contribution from my children and... More

If you are traveling to Seattle one of the first places you will go to will be the Pike Place Market which is the go to place for first time visitors, so once you are there, don't forget to go to the Gum Wall, which is kind of hidden a couple of steps from the main entrance of the market... More
