|| Wall Drug
survived the Depression by offering free ice water
to thirsty travelers on their way to the Black

free ice water and 5-cent coffee.
The store, now occupying an entire
includes numerous gift shops and an interesting
"backyard" with a huge
collection of old photos and other memobelia.
There ae also several
attractions within the store including a
cowboy band, a 6-foot replica of Mt. Rushmore, and

in addition to being a tourist trap, Wall drug is
actually a working

as you might think, especially if you need ranch
clothes or cowboy boots ... and, who doesn't?
