FREE ICE WATER!

Crazy how busy this place is now, after the idea of offering people free water. Yes, this is a tourist trap for sure. However, if you are in the area.... you probably have seen... read more

Crazy how busy this place is now, after the idea of offering people free water. Yes, this is a tourist trap for sure. However, if you are in the area.... you probably have seen the roughly 700 signs. Go ahead and stop here... you know you wanna.

Was admittedly not expecting much after seeing miles of signs for this place. It is huge and has many different sections and lots of stuff to buy. Most of it looked tacky and touristy. Very crowded and did not find salespeople helpful at all. If this is the # 1 attraction in town, there is no need to go to... More

The importance, lore and sheer awesome history of Wall Drugs is worth a visit. It's a welcome respite after driving through the Badlands...Get your free ice water...Get the delicious ice cream. It's smooth and tasty and homemade. The rest of the food menu is mostly canned, frozen and run of the mill cafeteria food at steep tourist prices. I recommend... More

After seeing the signs to stop at Wall Drug, and our friends at home telling us to be sure and stop here, we felt obligated to come for a visit. We arrived about 10am and so it wasn't very crowded. A person could spend an entire day here, but after buying some candy and doughnuts to take with us, we... More

Stopped by the famous store for lunch and some shopping. Fun to look around and pose with the Jack-a-lope outside...lunch was expensive but yummy. Nice stop to get a break from the sight seeing.

Nice place for souvenirs. Amazing how big this place is. Food was awesome and fast service. Spent over 2 hours just walking and looming. Saw many families with little kids out back playing in he water spouts! Good idea as it was 100 out today. Neat place to stop and stretch our legs. Oh and if you did not see... More

A very busy tourist mecca in SD. Tons of shopping and lots of ways to spend your money - especially if you have little ones in tow. We dropped a few dollars panning for "gems", shooting in the arcade, and eating buffalo hot dogs. Lots of photo ops and plenty of unique things to look at. Be aware of the... More

I remember coming here as a kid with my parents so had to stop with my girls. It is a tourist trap, gift store and I don't care. We were here for about 3 hours. Scared both girls with the packaged rattle snake eggs :) If you are driving through stop by, unless you hate crowds, people, and/or good service.

For some reason, after reading all about Wall Drug we were actually excited about coming to Wall to see this place. Turns out we should have only stopped in to see it and went on the Rapid City, SD instead of actually staying in Wall, SD for three miserable days. Wall Drug is the epitome of a tourist trap. Dozens... More
