Seattles Gum Wall - Credit: Michael Foth

No doubt about it, there are some weird a** tourist attractions around this great nation of ours. Like the super-disgusting Gum Wall in Seattle.  We took a couple of the kids out there a few years ago and we were enjoying the sights and sounds of Pikes Market when we came upon this gross gem of tourist "attraction." I use the term attraction loosely because there is nothing attractive about it.

The world-famous Gum Wall is located in a large pedestrian tunnel that runs under a street. One entire wall of the tunnel (and part of the other side) is completely covered by layers upon layers of stuck-on chewing gum. Bubble gum. Minty gum. Fruity gum.  It's really disgusting. I heard they cleaned all the gum off a while back, and it's already becoming layered up with fresh gum. With a million tourists a year visiting, it sticks up fast. Yuck.

Did you know Montana has a couple of pretty odd things? Next time you're in downtown Billings swing by Al's Bootery. They have a strange item in a glass case worth seeing. And the worlds largest steer is located in Baker. He's dead. And stuffed, on display.
