Come see why Laughlin is known as “Little Las Vegas.” Travelers can try their luck at any of the city’s eight unique casinos, which offer many slots, poker tables, and roulette. Laughlin’s casinos also boast top-notch live entertainment and excellent group-friendly dining options. For example, groups can book a river cruise at Aquarius Casino Resort; go bowling or relax in the pool at Don Laughlin’s Riverside Resort; and take in mountain views from the guest rooms at Edgewater Casino Resort.
Laughlin’s scenic location along the Colorado River makes for stunning city and river views. While exploring the downtown area, direct group travelers to stroll along the Laughlin Riverwalk, a paved walking path that presents a perfect way to relax after a long day of excitement.
Groups can also get out on the water with London Bridge Jet Boat Tours, which depart from Laughlin and travel 58 miles south to Lake Havasu City in Arizona. This boating journey passes through beautiful Topock Gorge, offering travelers diverse nature viewing opportunities of volcanic rock formations, ancient petroglyphs, and desert wildlife.
Venture just north of Laughlin to Grapevine Canyon, which is as the most southern point of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and holds many historical treasures. This area is most famous for its several hundred panels of petroglyphs, which were carved into rocks at the mouth of the upper section of the canyon. These artworks were created between about 1200 and 1800 A.D. and depict animals, humans, and ancient hunting equipment. In addition to exploring the petroglyphs, groups can take a leisurely hike around this scenic area.
