Not sure what to think of 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.

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.

Yes, as tourists, we were told this was a must-see....and we did go and see it the first day there...but while it was okay, I wouldn't go there again, and wouldn't recommend other go there...

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.

Bring your own gum!! It's an alley next to Pike Place. And it's literally a wall that is covered in gum. When we went the alley was full of tourists and people getting photos; obviously we had to get one, too. People got really creative and made full pictures out of gum; we simply blew a few bubbles and stuck... More

The Gum Wall is really several walls along Post Alley just at the end of the Pike Place Market. Go down the stairs by the pig in front of Pike Place Fish Market (the market stall where they throw fish around), start heading down hill and you can't miss it. Personally I think its gross and didn't add any "art"... More

Super unique - albeit gross to some - and on the way to the farmer's market and coolest part of town. It's a must do while in Seattle. Don't forget to chew some gum, take a picture, and attach your business card with it on the wall!

It was pretty cool to see how many people have been there but then you think how many germs must have been covering the wall it was pretty disgusting. The wall is very close to Pike Place. It's something to see.
