We went during a quiet time in winter, so most places were shut early. We had trouble trying to find somewhere open for lunch at 2pm, other than a gambling area. A nice area to walk around though, with beautiful building to see.

This is where the nightlife is happening in Deadwood and I cannot imagine someone visiting the city and not going to Old Town.

What a time on the "Main" street - it is lively even when Rally is not going on. Visitors from all over the world come here. Always fun to find a bar and talk to the others visiting. Something for everyone...

There are some really neat old buildings in Deadwood...the Franklin Hotel, the Midnight Star building, the Iron Horse Inn building to name a few. The facades of many downtown buildings are in keeping with the late 1800 period. Go inside many of them, though, and you will find some pretty generic casinos. The #10 is still interesting. There are plaques... More

Downtown is full of decorations and the shops are so cozy. The historical details of the architecture are very interesting. Feels like walking though the song "It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas" from 1951.

One can feel the history in these streets. Taking the trolley allowed us to tour the city with the opportunity to plan our walk. So many fun things to do within walking distance from our stay. I will he back for sure.

The downtown Deadwood is historic, idyllic but also super touristy. It's been made known worldwide by the tv show Deadwood and that was the reason we visited the place. But nevertheless it's idyllic and historic and definitely worth a visit.

Stopped in for a visit, watched the tv show, seen in movies and had to see for myself. It is great historic town, while walking around you can imagine what it may have been like a hundred years ago, it conjures up thoughts of gun fights, gambling halls, it is filled with old buildings, you walk into The Old #...

This was a real step back in time. The monuments, the buildings and the fact that the sun did not seem to hit the main street and it was cold. There is a good statue of Wild Bill Hikock, seated in the Main St. There was also a notice about when there was to be a shoot out. All great... More

This is worth a stop when visiting this part of the state. We left a visit here for early evening when the shops were open and we can have dinner at the same time. I would not come here as a day thing or take away from any of the beautiful nature things people can do in this part of... More
