Only for those who travel to find oddities, because this one definitely is. The gum wall is colorful and fantastic. Be sure to bring gum along to add to the wall. There are bathrooms in Pike Place if you get too close...

It's really amazing to look at, even up close. The thought of so many people leaving their gum on the wall brings a certain feeling of disgust, but the thought is easily tolerable until... you actually smell the wall. It stinks, really bad. The wall reportedly was power washed by the city only 2 weeks ago.

I recommend taking a peek from afar, then do a Monty Python and RUN AWAY!

It is gross and disgusting and completely unique. If you are at the market any-ways it is down some stairs under the big brass pig. Worth a look just to say you saw it. It will take five minutes tops.

It stinks, and it's pretty disgusting. But it is certainly unique and entertaining whilst walking around Pike Place. Check it out.

So, when we found it, we realized we had forgot gum; So of course we had to run out and buy some...
Yes, this place is pretty gross, but you can't help but take tons of pics, chew up some gum, and find a place to stick it!
We were only in Seattle a couple of days, but knew this was a Must See! Definitely worth the visit, but it's a quick In and Out!
