The Gum Wall is located just below Pike Market, on Post Alley. It is a "collection" of thousands of wads of chewed gum that have been pushed onto the brick walls in the alley (not to mention pipes, window frames, etc).
It is bizarre for...More
My teenagers had this at the top of their list to see in Seattle. I must say it was not what I expected...I have never seen so much chewing gum! This was one of the most gross things I have seen, but it was cool...More
We decided to take a quick walk through the alley with the Gum wall. It was really gross but super awesome at the same time. It’s cool to see how gum can make abstract art. If you are near the public market take the time...More
Near pikes market, you have the opportunity to leave a piece of yourself behind in Seattle. All you have to do is take a piece of gum to the gum wall in Post Alley and you leave behind your DNA and cooties. This probably isn’t...More
About 20 years ago, but the city of Seattle is taking it all down soon. I just saw it in the news last week.

I have a journal on my iPad, and this is an excerpt. I'll post on Vancouver and Seattle forum. The trip went from Seattle to Victoria to Vancouver to Whistler to Vancouver to Seattle. My wife and I are in our 50's Monday-September 16, 2013 Almost 4 hr direct flight to Sea-Tac went smooth. Light rail downtown, walked over to trolley, took that to the Marriott Residence Inn. Very smooth all the way around. Room wasn't ready so we walked around the harbor and booked our Kenmore Air float...More
