To feed the birds of course. And they do like the place.

Surprisingly, we did not see a single bird when we visited the Corn Palace. It's not Wall Drug, but still worth the stop! And, nearby there's a nice museum of Prehistoric Indians with an archeology site.

Welcome to the Corn Palace

That Indian site was very interesting. It was small and we got a great tour from the guide. I liked it better than the Corn Palace.

When we visited the corn palace, we also visited a doll museum. I think it was across the street. That was what made the stop to the corn palace worth while. Wall Drugs is awesome. I even bought a cup of coffee for a total stranger, and my wife did not object when she saw her and I sitting at the same table deep in discussion.

Visited Corn Palace 2 weeks ago and thought it was worth the stop. Stayed at R&R because its a decent campground and is a Passport America Pk. Full Hookup for $22. Such a deal!!!

We took in all the Tourist Traps along that route on our way home last June. Too much fun had at all of them.

Not too long ago, there was a murder in the Walls Drug RV trucker parking lot. A trucker shot his girl friend or the other way around.

Quite a number of years ago I pulled off the Mitchell, SD exit for gas and was stopped by the sheriff. He said it was Rodeo days in Mitchell and he was looking for a visiting family. My wife and two kids (12 and 14) fit the requirements. We were offered a free hotel room, steak dinner, VIP parking and seats at the rodeo, and passes to all museums in town! We also got the key to the city (with a handy bottle opener built in) and interviewed by a local reporter. It was my kids first rodeo, we had a great time with front row tickets and unlimited food and drink! (sort of wasted since we had already had the steak dinner in town before the rodeo) Next morning we went to Middle Border Museum and the desk person exclaimed, "I know who you are!" Seems like our photo was on the front page of the local paper! We went on to Rushmore, Wind Cave, Yellowstone, Tetons, Denver, and many other places, but that was the high point for my kids. Whenever I travel I-80 in SD, I still stop in Mitchell to buy fuel, food or tourism just to show our support.
