Historic Old Town Deadwood was a little unexpected for me. I expected it to be touristy but not the sheer amount of casinos and bars present. Probably a little less family friendly that I anticipated. Some placards mentioning the history of the town scattered about....More

Nice place to visit. Cool history. Casinos in most part, are a little run down and could use a refresh. They should look at Blackhawk, CO as an example. More historic stuff down town would be nice also.

Could only spend about 15 minutes here as short of time for coach. Would have spent much longer. Felt just like it should, old wood, separate waiting rooms for gents and ladies etc etc. Tiny window for ticket office. Fabulous. Staff helpful and volunteered information.

Remarkable setting. Watched the series Deadwood on HBO and visited all the places that were of importance to me. Sat there imagining how life was back then. You will never regret visiting downtown Deadwood, a truly down to earth experience.

We had been told by several people that no trip to the Black Hills region is complete without visiting Deadwood. I can see how it would be a very fun place to go if you enjoy gambling and drinking, but we don't do either of...More

The buildings were kept up with the old west theme. It made walking Main St so much fun. A lot of saloons and bars, casinos and of course shops. They have a shoot out in the center of town and at the Tin Lizzy if...More
