While in Seattle you must stop by the alley where the gum walls are, it’s so gross but it’s fun make your mark in history with gum and pictures. It’s amazing how many people have participated and if you’re at the market you’re right there...More

The Gum Wall is a quick stop and pretty disgusting if you begin to think about the millions of gums all over the alley walls. Nonetheless, it was a nice experience. Kids loved it and we all memorialized the moment by leaving a piece of...More

This is a must see in Seattle because it is just so gross. More of a gum street than a gum wall it is at the southern end of the market.

It's not just a wall. It's all over an alley, walls, pipes, railings. Have to admit. At first I was kind of grossed out. But the shapes, patterns, the colors. Was interesting and I could say I've been there. When taking pictures don't back up...More
