I thought Deadwood was a complete bust. Rather then a town focused on it's historical ties to the "old West"...Deadwood has been clumsily transported into a hodge lodge of casinos and touristy attractions. Unless you wish to gamble - you would be better off skipping...More

Walking along this historic downtown street brought back memories of the TV series Deadwood. Pictures of the GEM saloon and a re enactment of a shoot out are just some of the neat things in the old town.

Good to see the historic buildings. Stores are loaded with the usual tourist souvenirs, t-shirts, etc., etc. Look past that at the architecture and historic sites, some of which are marked along the way. Unless you are really, really into the Old West, 1 hr....More

In June when we visited across the street from The #1 Saloon there was a courtyard with stage w/musicians performing on Saturday. I'm guessing this was a regular happening. Band sounded good too! We were all invested in... More
