Old West History

The Old West begins in South Dakota. Your tours can experience the wild and wooly West at places like historic Deadwood, a prairie village near Madison, and the home of Laura Ingalls Wilder in De Smet. Favorite Western activities include rodeos, ranch visits, wagon rides, gold panning and historic train rides. During the summer, several Black Hills communities hold Western-style shootouts.
