Laughlin Experience

Pack up the truck or car, Laughlin is waiting for you. 


Discovered by Don Laughlin in 1964. He built the Riverside Casino and Hotel In 1966. In 1967 another hotel/casino emerged and was named Bobcat Club, now known as the Golden Nugget.


The 1980s saw the construction of several more hotels and casinos. The Colorado Hotel (now the Pioneer), The Regency, Sam's Town Gold River (previously known as the River Palms and now the Laughlin River Lodge), and The Edgewater opened in the early 1980s. Other investors saw the growth as an opportunity to get in on the action. A second boom resulted in the construction of The Colorado Belle, Harrah's Del Rio, and The Ramada Express (now The Tropicana). The Flamingo Hilton, now known as The Aquarius, was built in 1990.


In 1987, Don Laughlin funded and built the Laughlin Bridge at a cost of $3.5 million. He donated the bridge to the states of Nevada and Arizona. The bridge carries 30,000 vehicles daily. Prior to the bridge being built, patrons and employees would have to cross at Davis Dam


There are nine hotel/casinos in Laughlin providing over 10,000 rooms, RV Parks, many restaurants, museums, bowling centers, and a variety of shops.


Today, Laughlin is a vacation/entertainment destination. Mostly popular with those who enjoy the Colorado River and water activities, with a side of gambling. However, additional entertainment includes concerts throughout the year with main headliners and various other events like, the annual River Run (Motorcycles) in April, the River Regatta (float down the river) in August, and much more.


The Riverwalk is popular with visitors - various boat touring companies and events. Most popular spot along the Riverwalk is between the Colorado Belle and Edgewater, there are many events throughout Spring, Summer, and Fall. Riverwalk festivals and BBQ’s. Also, there is live weekend entertainment at the Loading Dock Stage outside the Colorado Belle
