Shopping Mall Landmark
Earning fame by giving free ice water to thirsty travelers, Wall Drug Store 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.

  • Wall Drug is a Tourist Trap, but a perfect end from visiting The Badlands (if heading from East to West). This place has all the fun shops, penny smashers, trinkets, and more you would find at tourist...  more »
  • Very touristy, overstimulating, and crowded. After reading the story of Wall Drug, I thought it might be a quaint place to recapture some history. But it has been elaborated in too many ways since its...  more »
  • Don't miss stopping at Wall Drug; it's iconic, and you won't believe it. From the highway, it doesn't appear very large, but once you stop, there are many quirky stores, food, a dinosaur, and so much ...  more »

  • This is an American Classic and a must-stop on the drive to Rapid City! The atmosphere is fun and family oriented! I journied here with my family as a small child and now 35 years later am bringing my own family. Shopping is great. Prices rock and people are friendly! Get some pie and 5 cent coffee!
  • Interesting stop. Loved reading History of Wall Drug. We had a lovely breakfast & took some donuts back to RV for travel. Love the oddities. But super disappointed in all the shops full of China trinkets. Artwork stunning. Very difficult to visit shops with stroller, too crammed in some to even go in. Probably missed the more crafted items as we skipped going in some due to lack of space to safely move about.
  • For all of the advertising there was for this place, I would have thought it would have been bigger and better. I saw about 30 different billboards advertising the place so I thought I would stop by. There are a couple of little shops (a book store, knife/old guns/cowboy stuff store, fudge store, and a couple other shops for souvenirs, and a little cafe/food area). It was okay but it seemed that the awesomeness of the place was really exaggerated.
  • Just a big strip mall with a western theme. If you like to shop this place is for you! Kids were disappointed as they thought they were going to old time drugstore not a crowded strip mall. Kids did enjoy the small splash pad, as we were camping in badlands an d weather was warm - splash pad was a fun way to cool off.
  • We had a blast!! There is so much to see and interact with. We aren't kids anymore, but we sure acted like it here. I even rode a jackalope!! Great prices on souvenirs and lots of photo opportunities. Great place for a rest from the car and to stretch your legs AND grab a bite to eat.
