Yellowstone National Park
Established on March 1, 1872, Yellowstone National Park is the first and oldest national park in the world. Preserved within Yellowstone are Old Faithful Geyser and some 10,000 hot springs and geysers, the majority of the planet's total. These geothermal wonders are evidence of one of the world's largest active volcanoes; its last eruption created a crater or caldera that spans almost half of the park. An outstanding mountain wildland with clean water and air, Yellowstone is home of the grizzly bear and wolf, and free-ranging herds of bison and elk. It is the core of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, one of the largest intact temperate zone ecosystems remaining on the planet. The human history of the park dates back 12,000 years. The events of the last 130 years of park history are reflected in the historic structures and sites associated with various periods of park administration and visitor facilities development.

Located in the heart of the Black Hills of South Dakota, Deadwood is a historically significant city to the gold rush of 1876. Deadwood originally was settled on Lakota land in the 1870s, and once gold was discovered, the town became known for wild saloons, brothels and gambling. Deadwood’s wild reputation was furthered after the murder of gunman Wild Bill Hickok. Deadwood turned around its reputation when the economy changed to mining. The entire town was later designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961. Gaming was legalized in 1989 to bring revenue and interest back to the area, and is popular today. Visitors to Deadwood also enjoy touring the restored Victorian buildings unique to the West. Hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking is popular in the summer, and skiing is enjoyed in the winter at two nearby ski areas.
This town hasn't changed much since the West was won, with historical architecture, authentic saloons, and a true wild western atmosphere.
