Somewhere between Fisherman's Wharf, the giant ferris wheel, and EPM Museum I found the gum wall. I have seen this on a few travel shows and always thought it would be smelly, cramped and frankly gross. I could not have been more wrong. Located in a wide alley way with cool bars and galleries off to either side it was a nice treat.
The Seattle Gum Wall is a bizarre tourist attraction in downtown Seattle located in Post Alley.
Like the Bridge Troll, it's one of those things that, if you're going to be in Seattle, you should at least stop by and see while you're enjoying the famous Pike Place Market (the Gum Wall's alley is just under a part of the Market).
It's disgusting, for sure, but it's also colorful and interesting. That said, I still wouldn't touch it...or add to it!
