where the hell is wall drug?

It's a really big destination for RVers. Look on the back of a well-traveled RV, and you'll probably see a Wall Drug bumper sticker.

Wall Drug is 1,460 miles east of San Francisco. Just follow the signs!

If you're anywhere on I-90 between Idaho and Wisconsin, you'll probably see a Wall Drug billboard every 5 miles.

South dakota. I hear it is heavily advertised.

It is extremely advertised. I went on a road trip to Mount Rushmore and on the way, literally every 2 miles, there was an ad for Wall Drug. We finally went and it was obviously very overrated but still I think it was worth it.

Should accept just Liberty as Statue is redundant to the question.

bourbon street is also a historic new orleans neighborhood
+2
Level 48
May 17, 2022
as a new orleanian, no it isn't. As the name suggests, it's a street, not a neighborhood. It's hardly historic, as most of the tourist attractions (which is what the quiz is about) are bars and clubs without much history. Go one block away from bourbon street and it's a lot nicer

Bourbon St is definitely not a neighborhood, but it is one of the streets in the French Quarter.

You already told us it is a statue, how about just accepting "Liberty" without statue? ...And thank you for now accepting "old ironsides," because I tried "constitution" several times thinking maybe I misspelled it only to find out I need USS in front.

Yeah, I got stuck on that for a while, when it didn't accept ironsides or constitution. Came up with adding USS before thinking to add Old, though.

Definitely should accept constitution. After inputting that twice, I assumed the quiz was misspelling it. Never heard of Wall Drug.

As someone who doesn't get to vacation outside of the Midwest often, I was excited to see Wall Drug and House on the Rock here. Both cool, kinda retro places.

Ditto! I went to Wall Drug as a kid, and hadn't been back until last summer. I thought it would be boring and not fun, but I was pleasantly surprised! Maybe not for everyone, but a unique place on the map.

Wouldn't want to live there though, as one commenter suggested. :-)

I live in South Dakota and have never been to Wall drug... However, there are billboards all around the world (China, Inida, Europe, etc.) and the majority of the signs are on I90...

Been to nine of these... including Wall Drug. I remain unashamed.

Could you accept "Sherman" for "General Sherman"? After all, "general" is already in the question. I thought I'd gotten it wrong when I typed in "Sherman" and it didn't accept it.

Where is the Space Needle, the Grand Canyon, the Empire state building, and the St. Louis Arch? They should be on this list too.

I always found it so interesting that the Statue of Liberty is on the New Jersey side of the New York- New Jersey border, yet they always teach it that it is located in New York.

Actually, the Statue of Liberty belongs to New York. It is an enclave within New Jersey. Ellis island belongs mostly to New Jersey with another New York enclave inside the museum.

Glad to see one from Wisconsin! Kind of sad that I live here and have never been to the House on the Rock. :(

I'm a little disappointed only 7% guessed the House on the rock. Does no one here read Neil Gaiman?

I personally believe, and I think others could agree, that many things on this list don't belong here; there are many things that are not here that maybe should be.

(Space Needle, Grand Canyon, Denali, Empire State Building, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, White House, Capitol Building, Liberty Bell, etc.)

Why do so many of you want the easiest, most obvious clues on these quizzes? You really need ANOTHER clue on this site about the Grand Canyon, Space Needle, and the freaking White House? Really?

The norm on Jetpunk is to accept the shortened, obvious answer: Liberty, Sherman, Constitution should all definitely be accepted. I thought I was going crazy and must have typed Sherman 5 times. "General" was already in the clue, why would anyone think they had to type that all out?

So sad that more people don't know Hearst Castle. It is a really cool tour in CA! Had never heard of Wall Drug nor House on the Rock.

Great quiz—thank you!
