Laughlin, Nevada

Situated on a slice of land in the Colorado River Valley, where, Nevada, California and Arizona converge, is the sunny city of Laughlin. And if three million visitors are any indication, the city on the river has certainly earned its place as a leading tourist and gambling destination. With gaming, the mighty Colorado River, and the city’s many special events, it’s easy to see why.

Laughlin earned its rank among tourist and gaming hot spots in just a few short decades, and the city can thank its many recreational activities for that.

Another way to enjoy the beautiful desert surroundings? Check out the Big Bend of the Colorado State Recreation Area for dramatic river and mountain views. It’s a great spot for picnicking, fishing, swimming and boating and just five miles south of the city’s casino row. Then there are the beautiful Black Mountains, Grapevine Canyon and Spirit Mountain, great spots to see interesting rock formations and Indian petroglyphs. Fishermen can try for crappie, bluegill, trout and striper bass at both Lake Mojave and the Colorado River. And there are still more ways for visitors to amuse themselves in and out of town, with tours and rentals of everything from ATVs and Hummers to boats and Jet Skis.
