Wall Drug, Wall

3.0
Earning fame by giving free ice water to thirsty travelers, Wall Drug has become a shopping mall filled with stores, gift shops, restaurants, and attractions for kids. Take a look at its collections of items such as toys, pottery, sculptures, decorative ornaments, souvenirs, candies, and T-shirts. Snap a photo in front of an artificial Mount Rushmore, climb the giant mythical jackalope, or have a classic Western meal at the restaurant. Have a picnic, eat a doughnut, or tour the art gallery. Children can even dig mines and look for gemstones and fossils. Just beware of the dinosaurs and the singing gorilla man.

  • I have been to Wall Drug over the years starting as far back as 1976. If you are in South Dakota, it is hard to miss. It now as big as a small mall. Parking is spacious behind a mall of shops. Althoug...  more »

  • Wall Drug Store has created its own reputation through excessive advertising and the infamous "free ice water," but it's worth the stop to say you've been there. They have loads of niche stores, such as a cowboy boots area or a bookstore focusing on the history of the region. The main area has plenty of touristy items for purchase to fulfill any desire. The restaurant was good, I enjoyed the bison burger and the 5 cent coffee (and of course the ice water). It was definitely a fun detour.
  • For some odd reason I see no mention of all the great free RV parking Wall Drug offers. If you're on the road and are self contained the parking area is HUGE. Paved areas and dirt areas. A great boon docking spot, if you are looking for a place to pull over and spend the night without the hassle of checking into an RV Park, this is it. We travel for work and these gems along the highway are perfect for a quiet nights sleep. Wall drug is also a great American icon. Not for the minimalistic person, that's for sure. Fun and quirky.
  • Someone recommended we not stop, but I'm glad we did. Worth the time - lots to see. Tourist trap maybe, but still a good time if seeing as much of this country is your goal. Good place to stop and eat on a trip across S. Dakota.
  • My family and I had a great time here! Take the time and get off the highway and drive over and see this place. There are so many stores inside this Wall Drug. It just keeps going and going and going. Pretty much anything you can think of buying on a trip you will find here. I'm giving it a five because everything we bought here was quality made!
  • We love to visit here on our way through at least once a year! Always fun to catch up with our favorite dinosaur or ride the giant jackalope or play in the water fountains. We always have fun looking in all the various shops and finding something exciting to keep the road trip fun. Worth a stop for sure!!
