Sun and water are healthy for you -- but not for your hair!

Have you ever been to Wall Drug in South Dakota? We dropped in there a couple of years ago on the way back from a road trip to Mount Rushmore! It's a town called Wall Drug because the family that founded it was named Wall, I think, and I believe it is likely that they opened a drug store there as well. There are some fountains that shoot up from sidewalks, a statue of a horse you can sit on for pictures, and many souvenir stores. There is free parking, too! We stopped there after driving through the Badlands National Monument. Also, they sell beer.

To summarize, South Dakota has (1) Mount Rushmore, (2) the Badlands, and (3) Wall Drug. Now, of course, nearly everyone in the state has COVID-19, so I would advise against planning trips there until this nastiness blows over.

LOVE,
VITALIS

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?


Wall Drug owns but it also kind of sucks but it more owns. It's better than 99.99% of other tourist traps out west. The water is still free for one

A town where you can buy drugs, AND you are allowed to shoot up on the sidewalk!?

Iíve been there. Years ago my family vacationed in South Dakota and Wyoming and we checked out Wall Drug on that trip. It was sweet. I almost bought a taxidermied jackalope head on a plaque.

the weirdest thing about wall drug is that the employees are all from like germany and are working there for the summer, they must have like employee housing or something. I hope they get weekends off gthety might be able to get to yellowstone for like 5 hours before they have to turn around

My favorite thing about wall drug is how thereís a sign for wall drug like every two miles all the way across the state. One of them was out by New Underwood and said in all caps ďFREE COFFEE AND DONUT FOR VIETNAM VETERANĒ Good times. I mean not really, living South Dakota sucked poo poo.

Thereís always a ton of Europeans working in the Rapid City area during the summer. I mean granted Wall is like 40 miles east but the whole area is just a giant tourist trap. There were two English dudes who worked at the Hotel Alex Johnson one summer and would beat my rear end at darts like twice a week. On Fourth of July I got extremely hammered and kept asking them where their red coats were, and one of the dudes responded with ďWhereís your memorial for winning that war in Vietnam?Ē It was a very sick burn.

I feel like this thread lacks actionable information that posters like me can use to make meaningful decisions. Should I go to Wall Drug right now? What should I buy there? How much weight can the photo horse support?

I was so ticked when I went to the corn palace. For years people sold me on it as "It's made of corn and they rebuild it every year!". No. It is a regular building with a bit of corn facade. 1/5 stars, would not visit again.

Sure, they're visually impressive, but a lot of posters find large avatars physically uncomfortable. Furthermore, the owners of large avatars often rely on their size alone and don't bother to develop more refined posting techniques.

Cape Cod fills up with seasonal Russian workers in this same way. It must be some kind of visa program employment thing. Worked down there for a year and I think I worked with more Russians than Americans. funny place
