TRAVEL DIARY: SOUTH DAKOTA - WALL DRUG AND DEADWOOD


Happy Monday, Blogland!

On the way we stopped at Wall Drug, which is a must see stop for anyone driving through South Dakota. I've been stopping there since I was little and though very touristy, it's still fun, and you'll be sure to find any souvenir you might need.

Now, onto pictures from my drive to Deadwood, dinner and evening downtown.

The BEST steak I have ever had with a side of green beans and potatoes au gratin, truly delish!
Even in the rain downtown Deadwood has a unique charm.
