A good place to take a break

I found Wall Drug to be a nice place to stop after a long day of traveling. It has an interesting story and I enjoyed walking through the variety of shops.

A quintessential tourist trap. Avoid the Cafe. We spent $60 for nothing good. We could have gotten better food somewhere else for that amount of money. The kids had fun in the shops and we found a couple goodies, but otherwise not very exciting.

Go just to say that you have went and gotten the free ice water. We looked around the shops and had lunch in the cafe. The burgers were very good. We also really enjoyed the doughnuts and purchased several to take with us.

After all the signs, it would be a shame to skip this road trip tradition. There is lots to see at Wall Drug, even if you don't spend a penny. My husband actually found a baseball style cap here that he loved...even after our week in the Black Hills, he couldn't find another he liked better so we had to... More

We really liked the story of how Wall Drug was started and how they started the free ice water policy, but for our family to visit it was just a noisy, crowded, hot set of tourist shops.

Nothing really out of the ordinary here. It is cheesy, but I'm pretty sure that is why people stop here. We ate lunch in one of the restaurants and the food was just ok, nothing special.

Wall, SD exists because of the drug store. We enjoyed learning of it historic, humble past. It is now a huge place the size of a city block with many departments. Wall, SD is in the middle of nowhere and thus a popular stop. Lunch was good.

HUGE!!! Not sure why they call it a drug store. I tried to buy some drugs but couldn't find any. They had everything else there. The kids had a good time in a small splash park and seeing the T-Rex. Plenty of photo ops. I hate shopping so this was a big trashy waste of time. I would rate a... More

You must see this place at least once. The amount of billboards leading up to it is amazing and it truly is an American tourist trap that will have you in awe. The amount of things they have packed into this block long store is amazing and it is fun to people watch as they go through the stores. As... More
