Not usually our cup of tea, but hey, we were in the Black Hills so had to check it out. Enjoyed Adams Museum and found a nice jewelry store across the street from the museum. Check it out if you want some real jewelry as opposed to the black hills gold junk.

This is a fun place to explore. It's not very big so walking it is very easy. This place was filled with restaurants casinos bars shopping. They also have gunfights out in the street. At saloon number 10 inside the salon they have the reenactments also

We like walking the main street of Deadwood, going into various shops, casinos and restaurants. This time of year is quite cold so we didn't spend as much time as usual on the street. We always like trying new places to eat and were disappointed that one of our favorite restaurants had closed.

You cannot miss the shootout that occurs on the Main Street and make sure you go along to the court case and hanging!!!! If you go along to the court case you'll also get a free concert - one of the unsuspected highlights of Deadwood....

We usually avoid the kitschy tourist traps but Deadwood does it right. You just know they are trying to drain your wallet (especially the casinos) but who cares? it is so doggone authentic. The historic buildings are just perfect. You don't have to buy a tshirt to stroll down the street and just soak it all in.

Deadwood is, of course, first and foremost a tourist attraction and that can be seen throughout the compact historical area. We found the omnipresence of casino gambling a bit off-putting but there is lots of interest there and they are easy to avoid. Lots of older building of historical interest.

Downtown Deadwood was a very safe and secure place to visit. The streets were clean, shop keepers were friendly. Overall a very nice experience. The trolley is a wonderful addition to the downtown area. $1 per ride per person was cheap and easier than finding parking. Can't wait to go back again.

We walked all around and were amazed at the historical buildings and the way it was being maintained. It was beautiful and pristine.
