Maybe Seattle's oddest attraction, you'll find the Gum Wall below the steps of Pike Place Market. It's gross, sure, but I kind of loved it. And definitely contributed to the colourful mosaic of chewing gum there.

It's like nothing you have ever seen before. Seriously. My husband and I parked in the parking lot adjacent to "The Gum Wall" building. As we stepped onto the sidewalk, there IT was. No warning, just gum EVERYWHERE. Very gross until we actually discovered how cool it was. Very touching, colorful and interactively artistic. If you're visiting Seattle, stop by... More

We made a quick stop at The Gum Wall while visiting Pike Place Market. The Gum Wall is just that, a wall filled with gum. While there isn't much that makes this location entertaining, we did each place a piece of gum on the wall. The amount of gum is pretty gross, but that's probably some of the appeal. I... More

The gum wall in located in the Pike's Market area. You'd never know unless you ask. I went out of curiosity. It was as gross as I had envisioned. Great photo op, but Don't Touch....GROSS!!!

It's a quick and free sight in Seattle. The wall was longer than expected and thoroughly covered with gum. Bring your own gum (and hand sanitizer) if you want to add your own piece to the wall.

Nice to see teenagers have a place to stick their gum. At first appearance it's kind of gross to see people chewing and then sticking gum on anything in this alley. Some people even throwing their gun as high as possible. My kids loved to take selfies, as did the other millennials. A unique experience, now let's see them take... More

We didn't seek out the Gum Wall, but ended up walking through the alley on our way back to the Market from the water front. It's a dark alleyway with cobblestone road and brick walls. Kind of felt like a brief step back in time with a strange twist. Both walls are covered with gum and some very detailed gum... More

I came prepared with gloves to visit the Gum Wall. I'm not normally too squeamish, but there is a geocache hidden here that I wanted to find. Found the geocache, admired the wall, then added my own contribution. Germy but very colorful and interesting!
