Bubblegum Alley, San Luis Obispo: 6 reviews and 12 photos


I'm going to go out on a limb and say Bubblegum Alley is one of the most disgusting things I've ever seen. Tens of thousands of pieces of used bubblegum squished onto the walls of this narrow alley make me wonder what kind of germs are meeting and mutating ready to leap onto unsuspecting passersby. Even worse than the gum are some of the other odds and ends hanging on the wall such as condoms...yuck.

Some of the gum is just stuck on the wall at random, while much of it says a short message or even could be considered art. Some people use gum to hang notes or even coins, other write their fraternity letters, and other draw American flags or martini glasses.

Overall, its fascinating but disgusting!

Address: 781 Higuera Street, San Luis Obispo
