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.

The bubblegum alley is a really crazy idea and it’s a very unique place. Personal tip: Just come here with a big and colourful gum that you can find again when you’re coming back. Just love that place!

Decided to stop by here on my way through downtown just to take some pictures. My daughter was squeamish about walking all the way down the alley and back. That’s something you don’t see anywhere else I’m sure. Some people are real artisans with their...More

Was an alley full of peoples chewed bubble. There were a few interesting bubble gum designs and words on the wall though. Went there to see what the hype was all about. Kinda seemed weird in there though. Probably wouldn't go again.

Attractions can be scenic, hold historical value, deep significance - this one is simply disgusting in a fun way. Especially some of the bubblegum 'designs' people manage to put on the wall with just a bit of different coloured gum...pretty creative:)

Words can not describe this except when you're in SLO, you got to come here and add to the collection!

Since we had seen bubblegum alley in seattle, we made it a point to see this point of interest. However, the alley is extremely narrow and caused it to fall more on the gross side than the eclectic side. Would not recommend it.

Skip Bubblegum Alley. It’s gross to see old masticated gum stuck to a wall. Really? Told my kids to not touch anything while walking down this alley.

You have to see this..... and stick some gum on the wall. It is gross but fun to see at the same time. I have been there once and once only.

Yes, it is open at night. It is just an alley way between two buildings - open 24/7.
