The Gum Wall at Pike Place Market in Seattle, Washington is free to visit, but it probably should be. It is seriously a wall where theatergoers have stuck their pieces of chewed gum over the years. While it is a sort of fun local tradition, it's also kind of gross, and definitely not to everyone's taste.

The Gum Wall's claim to fame is featured in a scene of Love Happens (2009) starring Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart. Their characters stuck their gum to the wall in a brief scene. Not exactly a top reason for most people to visit an attraction, but apparently more than a quarter of a million people have seen fit to stick their wads of gum there and the weird wall is still growing.
