We arrived in the evening on Wednesday and the town was super quaint and the scenery was beautiful. We stayed in a Comfort Inn that was brand new and had the nicest amenities. There was a tiny little water fall right by the parking lot and the rooms were beautiful. We were very impressed since our family stayed there for only $99.
Thursday morning we met up with Dustin (Jared's brother) and his family. They made a stop in Deadwood on their way to Montana. Their vacation was just beginning as ours was coming to a close.
We spent the morning wandering around downtown and visiting the little shops. Jared and I enjoy the history of the town and actually have watched documentaries and read quite a bit about it so that was neat for us. Unfortunately, the history is one of brothels, outlaws, murder and the like. I wouldn't exactly call Deadwood "child friendly." There were slot machines in every building and there were shops named after brothels.
We ate lunch in a neat Diner that was located in the town's very first gas station. I tried bison which was very good!
We stopped in at the Adam's Museum. That was fascinating, and the kids actually really enjoyed all the information and pictures.
