"Convenient stopover" Lusk by toonsarah

Lusk Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 16 photos

Replica of a Deadwood-Cheyenne stagecoach

Lusk’s strategic position on the Deadwood-Cheyenne stage made it a popular stopover with the travellers of that day, and like them we found it a useful one night stop on our tour of Wyoming.

There’s not a huge amount to do in the town itself, apart from the obligatory small museum that every town in the state seems to have, but there are a number of decent motels and a few places to eat. We were very happy with our choice of the former and very disappointed with our choice of restaurant, despite the recommendations of other VTers – as you can read in my tip.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Very convenient location and friendly motel
  • Cons:Very unfriendly service in the Pizza Place

    Travel by stage coach must have been cramped and uncomfortable – even if there were no thieves and highwaymen along the way. I wonder how many passengers they used to stuff into a stagecoach like the one in your photo.

    Great historical information about Lusk and it's role in the American West! Too bad about that terrible pizza joint - it takes quite a bit to get me stirred up too but, if it happened to me I'd write the same review!!

    What a lousy pizza place! Maybe the fame made them a little megalomanic? But the scenery is lovely!!

    Nothing worse than a disappointing meal. Lucky you had the big sky scenery to lift your spirits!

    Geesh! Too bad about the Pizza. They probably were short-handed - it's hard to get good help these days. hehe! BTW I never eat my Pizza with a fork & knife - I just "shovel" it in.
