     Wall has gained worldwide fame as the home of Wall Drug. Wall Drug which we like to call "the Mother of All Tourist Traps", but that's not a bad thing. In fact, Wall Drug is a good reason to visit wall.
     Most folks driving in from the East stop in Wall either on their way to the Black Hills or on the way home again or after looping through the Badlands on SD Highway 240.
 If you are coming from the North, South or West, you'll probably stop in Wall on your way to the Badlands. Once you make it to Wall Drug you'll have to experience the free ice water or the 5-cent coffee. You might want to watch the animated cowboy band just to say you've seen it. Otherwise, to our way of thinking, the best part of Wall Drug is the huge collection of old-time pictures in the "Backyard." Wall Drug also has a good collection of regional books in it's bookstore.
     The Minuteman Missile Site and the Badlands are both near Wall.
