Playing tourist in Deadwood, South Dakota! Yes, I could live here! Moving on to Custer, SD this am! Happy Birthday Vicki!!

 Yesterday, the 18th was a day of playing tourist in Deadwood, South Dakota. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves :) 

I  wish we didn't love our little home and our neighbors so much...
I could definitely live in South Dakota!

Colors are changing...even in the few days we've been here!

Coming into Deadwood

Lot's of shirts like this and bolder messages! Definitely a conservative state ๐Ÿ˜€

Lots of Moonshine! 

Inside Wild Billl's Bar! Very cool place!

Yes we had a couple of drinks here...

$10.00 a person to see where he died..no pictures or video allowed..No, we didn't go..

This was downstairs..was hoping some orbs would show up..but nope..

Door handles to the bar..LOL. 

Ken wanted Mexcian for a late lunch (LINNER) so we started walking to the only
place that had it..way out of the main part of town, we decided to walk back to the  truck and drive to the restaurant. We would have been miserable walking uphill after eating :) The restaurant was Guadalajara's inside Cadillac Jack's Casino.  Good food, but not in the top 10.  

After that we took a short drive to Lead, South Dakota. Cute town, but definitely not the tourist trap that Deadwood is. 

I love this! 

The parking lot at the casino and hotels..Very packed!

Our campground is in Sturgis..

A little fixer upper...

Yep, I could live here!

Downtown Sturgis looks nothing like the pictures we see during the rally! 

Today we're moving on to Custer, South Dakota about an hour and a half from here. The campground only has 1 opening for tonight only. We wanted two days, so we'll see how that turns out.  

Hoping to take a drive through Custer State Park and do some antiquing in Custer. 

Looking forward to a new adventure. Time to get some breakfast going! Have a wonderful day! 

Happy Birthday to my wonderful friend Vicki!! Love you! ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿง๐Ÿท๐Ÿธ๐ŸŽ‚


  1. I loved it there. Not sure I would want to deal with all the snow and ice, but if you buy a house there, I'll buy one next door!!!! Love those old west towns.

    1. Oh I wish, If I won the lottery I definitely would buy a house here! Probably won't happen though. But definitely we'll continue to visit :)

  2. Great photos , thanks for sharing

  3. Deadwood looks like a neat town. You have a beautiful spot, just continue to visit S.D. as Nancy says the snow and ice IS not fun. :)
    Laughed at how far that man was standing away from the dog he was petting. Is he afraid of it or Covid? Good grief!

  4. I have to tell you Patsy there is NO Covid scare here in SD. Free, you would never know Covid exists. Few visitors wearing masks as their choice but very few! Personal choice for everyone. Everywhere is open just like it used to be. Really makes me not want to go home to our dictatorship state! Maybe he was scared not knowing if the dog would bite. This area is very touristy, but fun for a few days! :)
