We arrived after a long drive across the top of Wyoming and were welcomed by a scene out of a western film. Deadwood is a gambling town, and always has been since the days of Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hicock. However, the gambling is...More

Was really excited to stop in Deadwood to get the feel of an old west town, but was really disappointed. We arrived in Deadwood later in the day, around 5:30, and there was hardly anyone walking along Main Street. Every shop and restaurant had a...More

We enjoyed the show "Deadwood" so we were looking forward to visiting it on our 7,000 mile USA road trip. There are a lot of interesting things here so it is worth the time to explore.

If in the area, take time to explore Old Town Deadwood...shops, hotels, bars and casinos will take up your day...
