Wall Drug, South Dakota

August 24, 2016 – After seeing hundreds of Wall Drug billboards as we traveled Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Iowa and South Dakota, we thought we’d stop for lunch and see why Wall Drug is so famous.

It turns out that they’re famous for… being famous. They started the billboards in 1931 to bring customers in, and it worked so well they’ve been doing it ever since.

Biggest tourist trap we’ve seen this trip! LOL

The sign on the wall clearly says All Drug Shooting Gallery!IMG_0344 IMG_0343So we looked around, took a bunch of pictures, then left without buying a thing! LOL

IMG_0292It should be called Flat, SD, instead of Wall.
