Owner description: Want a piece of ABC gum? Head to this fascinating, if somewhat unsanitary, walkway that features walls covered with gum of the "already been chewed" variety.

“Delightfully Disgusting”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Bubblegum Alley is a must see in San Luis Obispo. It is gross but a fun random claim to fame in San Luis. Check it out if you get the chance.

“Overrated”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Nothing special about this place. Stopped by this place because it was recommended on various websites, but it's not worth the time.

“Frightening!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We passed by this accident and the girls were afraid to go anywhere near it! A bit dodgy, but seeing as I have an aversion to chewing gum, maybe this an unfair review...

“A quick stop”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We stopped by this little curiosity while exploring downtown. The legend is more impressive than the actual site, which is really just a bunch of gum and wrappers stuck to a grimy wall... Some people tried to be creative by spelling words with the gum or making shapes with the wrappers. A quick stop - don't expect too much!

“Kitchy Classic SLO”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Honesty, it is pretty disgusting to think about how many germs must be crawling around on an alley filled with used gum, but it is a classic thing to do in San Luis Obispo. A weird tourist attraction to be sure.
