As a tourist, I couldn't skip the gum wall. Kind of weird and disgusting and neat all at the same time! I made sure to chew a big ol' wad of gum and left it on the wall...then immediately ran to the restroom to scrub my hands! go for the pics and cross it off your bucket list.

I have to say it is a weird site for people to visit. Basically people here only can take pictures with the wall. I do recommend one could stop by here when visit pike market place. However it is not a site that you want to visit on purpose.

It is one of those places that since you are in the area you might as well make a stop. It is so iconic to Seattle that we got dragged in. It was actually pretty interesting how people got creative with the gum itself. It's a 5 minute stop so go ahead and make the stop. The espresso bar at... More

The Gum Wall is consisted of a wall of gum. Not far at all from Pike's Market so you can cross off two on your bucket list.

It is a very quick stop but really need to be seen. It is disgusting but fun. A little bit difficult to find so ask directions. Don't go during the evening, but do it.

They just cleaned the wall a few months ago but still it was already filled again with all kinds of bubblegum. It's very unhygienic but special to see.

If you’re near the popular bronze sculpture of Rachel the Pig at Pike Place Market, there is a set of stairs. Walk down and you’ll see the popular Gum Wall. It won't take long to see as it's a couple of walls covered in people's chewed gum. As I wandered down all I could smell was the bubblegum flavour of... More

This is part of an alley way, its literally a wall of gum, and its gross. But walking down the alley way, leads you to some cool and trendy shops and restaurants, that I wouldn't have known about, if I hadn't come.
