Gum Wall at Pike Market , the Germiest Location in Seattle!

Tired of doing the same boring, generic type of tourist locations? Well then, it's time for you to take a trip to Seattle then into the Pike Market so you can stick gum on a wall!

The Market Theater Gum Wall is one of Seattle’s most unusual landmarks and one not be missed. Legend is people waited so long to get into the theatre they kept putting gum on the wall while waiting, then at some point the employees gave up cleaning the brick wall and voila! A new landmark was created.

The gum wall is getting more and more attention as the years pass by, it was used as a location for the movie Love Happens in 2008.

To get there, once you arrive in front of the Pike Market you’ll see stairs to go under the market, take them and you’ll be at the gum wall but don’t forget your hand sanitizer and chewing gum.


If you have a car but forgot to check the parking information it’s tricky to get a parking spot near the market:

    Been there, done it, over 10 years ago..wow...nice photographs. It has grown into an amazing wall. I really like the stringing off the ledge.
