Visitor Tips and News About The Gum Wall
I have lived in Seattle for 50 years and have never seen the Gum Wall until today. It's in Post Alley of the Pike Place market, but it's at the south end, under the market. If you find the Giant Piggy Bank (by the fish throwers) there is a staircase right by it that will take you down to the Gum Wall.
Kinda cool and very colorful. Apparently last year they had to scrape a bunch of gum off the wall as it extended too far.[Connie in Seattle, 06/06/2014]
Be sure to bring gum so you can leave your mark on the wall.[Kathleen, 11/28/2010]
