After a scenic drive through Black Hills National Forest, we arrive in the Wild West town of Deadwood for a guided tour. Dive into the gold rush past of this interesting city as we explore Historic Deadwood and Main Street, then hear about legends, such as Calamity Jane and Wild Bill, who rest at Mount Moriah Cemetery.
