Deadwood, South Dakota is fun.  Located between Rapid City and Spearfish, the drive is scenic.

If you are a fan of cowboy movies or western history, these towns in the Black Hills are familiar to you.  In real life, they are a lot of fun.

We started gambling in the Silverado Casino.  Not big stakes gamblers, we played slot machines.  We had fun and won some.  This was my favorite slot machine

and where mom’s friend won.  We were in South Dakota to attend a wedding and met the groom’s parents in this casino.  Popular place.  After winning, we walked down some of Deadwood’s streets.

The old building are interesting and the names of the businesses were very old west names.

We ate at Pump House Coffee and Deli that had been a gas station.

and lots of gas station stuff was there.  The deli menu kept the theme with the names of sandwiches.

All the humans seemed to be having a good time.  It was a warm sunny day so I saw many humans smiling.  I like happy people.

Deadwood is a small town in the Black Hills.  It is easy to find as it is close to Spearfish and close to Rapid City.  It is also an easy drive to Mount Rushmore.  You will have a good time when you visit.  The hardest decisions will be which casino to visit first and where to eat.  But don’t worry.  You cannot make a bad choice.  Everything is good in Deadwood.
