I am a first timer and have read through some prior posts, but still am unsure of which area to stay. My husband and I are just starting to plan a trip, but we are unsure of which time of year to visit and where we should stay. We are looking possibly at May. We enjoy gambling and sight seeing (antiqueing, museums, caverns and parks, etc...) but after trying to do some research on Deadwood, I am unsure as to whether or not I would want to spend a week there. I would greatly appreciate any advice that could be given on diiferent areas to stay. Mt. Rushmore is the main reason for the visit, as we have not decided on other activites yet.
