You will Take Home with you Memories from Laughlin that will Last for a Long Time to Come
The city of Laughlin was named after a local native, Don Laughlin, who was the first landowner of a piece of land on the southernmost part of Nevada (along Colorado River which connects to California and Arizona) near South Pointe. Don Laughlin was also the first person to own and operate the area’s club and casino which was named the Riverside Resort. Not to the surprise of visitors, Laughlin ranks third as the most visited place in Nevada because of its casinos, coming hot on the heels of Las Vegas and Reno. The city is also known for their very active RV events. Laughlin prides itself in being one of the most family-friendly cities in the state of Nevada and a popular place for outdoor and indoor activities suitable for people of all ages especially its Laughlin Riverwalk.
It has come a long way since it was known as a stopping point for those heading north in their search for gold and silver. There was a very specific strategy to increasing the number of visitors and it was to provide free transportation in the form of shuttle boats that ferries visitors across the river. Some of the city’s biggest casinos include The Colorado Belle, Harrah’s Del Rio and Tropicana Express. Today, vacationers will get to enjoy the countless casinos, motels, restaurants, museums, bowling centers, boutiques, spas and salons in and around Laughlin and it has been reported that the number of visitors come up to nearly 2 million people every year. The city also hosts a number of festivals and events throughout the year, ramping up the number of visitors so, check out the Talent Quest National Finals, New Year’s celebration (which is held together with Bullhead City), the Laughlin River Run, Townfest and annual River Regatta which has the capacity to attract up to 40,000 enthusiasts from all around the country. Swimming, boating and fishing are regular activities for the locals and golfers will get to enjoy the public Mojave Resort Golf Club which is located on Fort Mojave Indian Reservation or bring your family for a fun-filled day at Colorado River Greenway Heritage Trail park which is popular with equestrian, pedestrians, joggers, runners and bicyclists alike. People can also head out to Mountain View Park for softball, tennis, basketball or have a picnic, exercise or make use of the skateboard park. Laughlin served as a backdrop for various movies, TV series and stories which includes Shark, Viva Laughlin, View from the Top, The L Word and Frasier.
