While this is a weak example, the I-90, the highway that cuts across South Dakota is littered with promotional signs for Wall Drug. A drug store tourist trap that is a must-see in South Dakota--if only to answer the mysterious call of the dozens of billboards that boast all manner of exotic treasures at the legendary Wall Drug.
An 80-foot dinosaur greets you in Wall, South Dakota, along the highway. If you head into town you see the infamous store.
I don't want to ruin the Wall Drug experience for anyone! So only a couple of pics of the inside. It's a wacky labyrinth of mini shops offering everything from jackalopes to cowboy hats and everything in between.
One of the most unusual--and quiet (and oddly empty) spots is the traveler's chapel. Just a quiet respite in the midst of a cacophony of tourist trappings. Pretty fabulous. Worth the minor detour. And you'll be thirsty by then anyway!
