Want a piece of ABC gum? Head to this fascinating, if somewhat unsanitary, walkway that features walls covered with gum of the "already been chewed" variety.

A fun day with a friend and an interesting tourist attraction. Some people don't get it - but as college kids it was a photo opportunity.

The brick oven pizza is the place to. After lunch there we took a look. How gross! This really nothing much to see.

Having attended Cal Poly in the 80's, my wife and I took the kids to Bubblegum Alley last week. We made our deposits, took our pictures...and strolled on down the sidewalk for a breath of fresh air! Fun times!

Exactly what it sounds like: a wall covered in gum. Fun to see and easy to drop in while strolling through San Luis Obispo.

I don't understand why this is an attraction. Why anyone would want to walk down the unsanitary alley is beyond me. YUCK!

Bubblegum alley is an interesting tourist stop. If you really think about it, it's just an unsanitary alleyway. There is so much gum on the walls that there are layers and it smells kind of sweet too. It's worth seeing once.

Have to see it to believe it. Become part of the attraction, bring your gum and stick it on the wall. Don't even have to go in there to see it, Can be seen from the sidewalk.

Yes, it is open at night. It is just an alley way between two buildings - open 24/7.
