“Do it at least once in your lifetime”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Wall Drug is the epitome of a tourist trap littered with souvenirs although some of the stores inside have high quality clothes, shoes and accessories. The signs posted on the interstates/highways for miles in all directions as you approach the town of Wall, are sure to keep you entertained and bring a smile to your face.

“South Dakota's answer to Pedro's South of the Border”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

This is South Dakota's answer to Pedro's South of the Border. Signs hundreds of miles away, the store and typical Chinese-made souvenirs - nothing special, but stop anyway to take a picture just to say you stopped and then be on your way.

“lots of souvenirs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

lots of hype, plenty of billboards all across the state of south dakota, but...a big disappointment.

i expected more of an 'historic' or old fashioned vibe - but it's just a sprawling place with lots and lots of souvenirs. nothing much left of the old drugstore we were looking for.

not worth stopping for in my opinion.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

With all the signs we spotted along the highway, we were expecting Wall Drug to be more exciting. It is large, but the merchandise was mostly touristy.
