I definitely wanted to stop at Wall Drug on our way back home from visiting the black hills. Seeing we don't have any future plans to visit again, we thought we would see what all the hype was about. However, this stop was definitely a waste of time and money. We had lunch at Wall Drugs and the food was... More

This is something you just can't miss. It's a place of history. A place to rest from the road. There is something for everybody here. Dino's to gold to ice cream. It's easy off and plenty of parking for rv's and big trucks. So stop on by and take a break and see what you can find at wall drugs.

I have traveled the world and thought I seen the worst of tourist traps.....until my family and I made our most regrettable mistake of my life time (50+ years). As soon as we drove into the lot we realized it looked like so e cheap b movie set. Unfortunately my elderly parents were with us and looking forward to this... More

Wall Drug in Wall, SD is exactly as advertised: a unique, early 20th century eclectic roadside attraction of a type that has sadly been eclipsed by cookie-cutter stuccoed sameness and commercialized vacation "experiences." Snobs should keep on moving and maybe go to Disney instead. Wall Drug is the real deal, Americana at its best, and if you get it, you'll... More

If you're driving on the I90, once you get into South Dakota you start seeing all these billboards popping up saying things like "Free ice water at Wall Drug," "New T-Rex at Wall Drug," and all sorts of other silly things., The signs become so frequent, that by the time you get the Wall Drug exit, you just have to...

This place is advertised all along the interstate, so we figured it must be worth seeing. Upon getting in close proximity to it, we sort of knew it was our cup of tea, but we were starving. We got a seat in the overly crowded cafe. We paid WAY TOO MUCH for a less than mediocre burger. We did walk... More

It all started with a free glass of Ice Water,back in the 30's. And has grown into the largest Drug Store any where.

I'm glad I saw Wall Drug Store. It is an immense place and if you get there EARLY (before 10am) you may even be able to enjoy shopping before the crowd hits. IF YOU'RE PRESSED FOR TIME make this a quick stop just to say you were there and then skee-daddle to something more memory-making like Badlands. Again....glad I saw... More
