Deadwood, South Dakota
The town of Deadwood, South Dakota was founded in 1876 when prospectors came across a gulch full of dead trees and a creek full of gold. Thus began the town’s wild history, full of characters like Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane.
Today, you can still get your vice on here, thanks to Deadwood’s casinos and many bars and saloons. But you’ll also find nice restaurants, guided tours and even historic re-enactments held throughout town during the summer in Deadwood.
Tip: Stay in the Bullock Hotel to experience true Victorian elegance.
