Seattle is one of the places in the world with weird but equally amazing attraction sites. The locations are somewhat unusual and a great way to impress tourists. Below are some of the places:
The Gum Wall
This is quite a disgusting site yet very interesting to look at too. It is located in Pike Place Market. This is all the work of passersby who stick gum on the wall a practice which has been going on since early 1990s. There are several gum shapes and designs such as hearts and smiley faces. Anyone can add their gum if they please.
This is a novelty shop with items you need but don’t know you do till you walk in here. You will get all products ranging from a unicorn horn for your cat to a mustache for your baby and anything else you can think of but just won’t get it anywhere else. For those who are not a fun of novelty shops, you can just walk in and enjoy the weirdness of the place.
This sculpture is found under the aurora bridge on the northern end. It is made of steel, concrete, wires a Volkswagen beetle and a hubcap. It has been there since 1990 and is believed to guard the bridge since then.
Giant Shoe Museum at Pike Place Market
This one is not a museum as the name would prompt you to think. It is actually a pace where you pay a few coins to see the some of the legendary shoes. These include shoes worn by the tallest man, mystery shoes and the greatest shoe in the world. Actually, there are many quirky museums in and around Seattle.
Bob’s Java Jive – the giant coffee pot
Just like the name suggests, this is a bar and restaurant shaped like a coffee pot. There are karaoke nights every night and live DJs to entertain the countless people who come to enjoy their cheap yet very delicious meals. The building has been in existence since 1927.
Wallingford Wall of Death
This is neither exactly a wall nor has anyone ever died here. It is just a sculpture found under the university bridge made of huge orange rings reads. There are huge spike emerging from the ground holding the rings in place.
Vladimir Lenin in Fremont
This is a 16 feet tall statue made of bronze of Vladimir Lenin. It was made by the Czechoslovakian and Bulgarian Emil Venkov for the soviet governments used as one of the machines of propaganda by the communists.
This is another cold war relic build in the 1950s perched on AJs surplus. This is in Bell Town.
Ye Oldie Curiosity Shop
This is yet another shop that sells novelties and souvenirs but also has museum characteristics. There are cool antiques here for you to buy or just see.
Bicycle Tree on Vashon Island
In the said island, there is an old bicycle that is found in the middle of a huge tree roughly twelve feet off the ground. There are several versions of stories on how the bicycle got there. The most common one being of a buy who left it there and the tree grew around it engulfing it inside.
