Superfically cute old west mining town. They opened up to casinos and that has allowed them to restore many of the old buildings and add services but you have to run the casino gauntlet to do anything. There are a few non casino shops and a few restaurants not associated with the casinos we struggled to find things for the kids during our brief stay. History buffs can explore the cemeteries and the restored saloons. Good jumping off point for the Mickleson trail but otherwise I'd skip unless you want to enjoy the casinos.
Historic town filled with lots to do - Mt. Moriah Cemetery, Tatanka Spirit, Saloon #10, great restaurants and casinos.
Deadwood is a gold-rush themed town where actors often reenact shootouts on Main St. This is a great stop on a family road trip through South Dakota's famous national parks and monuments.
Deadwood, along with Tombstone and Dodge City, is one of those towns that is a living symbol of the Old West. A boom town in the 1870's, Deadwood became famous for its gambling and gunfighters. The most famous inhabitant was probably lawman Wild Bill Hickock, who was shot in the back of the head while playing cards in a Deadwood Saloon. While the original site of Wild Bill's murder has since been demolished is "death chair" is actually exhibited in Saloon No. 10.
