Just 140 km south of Las Vegas and a few kilometres over the border from Arizona is the small desert town of Laughlin, NV, where tourists can gamble 24/7 and ride their jet skis and yachts on the Colorado River. What sets Laughlin apart from the seedier Vegas Strip is the fact it is marketed more for family entertainment, which means your hotel room will not feature a call-order stripper catalogue tucked beneath the room service menu. Unlike a typical Vegas trip, you can enjoy your days outside of the casinos strolling along the Laughlin Riverwalk.

Laughlin is in a desert, so it is hot and dry year round with an annual rainfall of 11 cm. That said, the temperatures do vary significantly by season. Summer highs are scorching at 38 to 40°C in July and August, while winter lows drop just under 3°C in December and January.
Getting There & Around
Laughlin is about 5 km from the Laughlin/Bullhead City International airport. Bullhead City, AZ, also has the nearest Amtrak and Greyhound stations, and it is accessible by I-40 and highways 93 and 95.
Even though the town is very small, there is a bus service if you do not have a car.
