  • When you walk thru the doors you understand that you just came home. The home you may never have experienced - but the home you always knew existed somewhere between your favorite childhood memories, faded by time and and distance and your dreams of enchantment both familiar and unknown - at journey's end. Be prepared to spend a lot of leisure time, and a little money. Your sights may be set on the horizons - but you will need this time to rest, eat first rate food, browse the entire store and take it all in. While you're at it, you may find the perfect gift for a friend or family member. Maybe the perfect gift for that special someone - YOU! Don't miss an opportunity of a lifetime. Many of the people you will see when you visit Wall Drug - have been there before. Become another loyal fan of one of America's most beloved tourist attractions.
  • It's a tourist trap, don't get me wrong, but the prices are relatively reasonable. Though 12 dollars for a burger and fries sounds a bit unreasonable in retrospect. The food is good, though. I got a couple belts at about $40 each, and they were not the cheapest. They were American made, quite nice, and should last a while compared to some of the cheaper, more costly ones sold these days. There is also a nice fudge store, though the cleanliness might he questionable depending on the employee working. I saw a fly on one flavor of fudge. Though the fudge is good. It's worth the trip.
  • We stop every time we go to Alaska, or any place else we go north of San Francisco. Our kids always wanted to stop from age 5 into adulthood. One has to wonder how so many can rate it a 5 and how many can rate it a one and some say some really bad things. My guess is that the 1 ratings come from New Yorkers, or rich people who couldn't appreciate the best "tourist trap" in America, which it just might be. It is like a carnival with a Western flavor and high end items too. I say bah- humbug to the ones who have no taste for a fantastic tourist trap with a great variety of terrific food!
  • Not exactly what I was expecting, though I guess I'm not sure what I was expecting. It was fairly kitsch and was mainly set on selling trinkets to customers. I don't typically buy that type of stuff, so it wasn't really my thing. It was interesting to look at all of the stuff though, so I don't regret checking it out.
  • There is a lot of variety here. This place is huge. It's always a "must" to stop for me. Great food, ice cream, donuts and fudge. They have a huge art collection, chapel, arcade, gold panning, interactive water fountain, clothing stores, gifts, jewelry, toys, book store, oh.... And a drug store too. :) It has a bunch of fun and kitschy photo opps that always make me grab for my phone or camera.
