Wall Drug is a remarkable blend of Old West memorabilia and a Route 66-style American-Highway road stop. It’s not just a drug store. It’s a block-long mall that includes a western museum, art galleries, a travelers’ chapel, novelty shops, a great diner and, of course, a full-service drug store. Out back, there’s even an 80-foot dinosaur.
The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is also a major South Dakota attraction for a more exclusive group of travelers. But, you can bet, most of the bikers attending “Sturgis” make their way to Wall Drug for a “free glass of ice water,” Wall’s famous promotional item. Of course Wall sells a lot of aspirin to those bikers as well to alleviate the aftereffects of Bike Week.
