From The Eyes of a Local


My wife and I recently moved from Wisconsin to Laughlin after visiting three times a year for 25 years. I would be glad to help answer any questions you may have about our beautiful area. Come on out and visit.

I was so glad to visit with someone that lives in Laughlin. I'm visting for the first time January, 2005 we are staying at the Flamingo and I have begun to hear terrible things about their hotel. Are you familiar at all with the Flamingo? Are the rooms clean etc.? Any favorite places you recommend to eat? Any favorite casino you like to gamble at?

Any info you can give me Mike would be so much appreciated.

Thank you.

Some high school buddie's and myself, will be travelling to Laughlin in Feb. We will be visiting a school friend who live's and work's there. Without asking her everything, what can we know on our own? Like what to do with twenty or so, middle forty something's who were very close in high school, and loved to party. We will be staying at the AVI Hotel and Casino.

We're from Vt. and have visited L.V. several times in spring, witer and fall. This summer we're coming out in July to experience that. We're considering moving to your area, somewhere between L.V. and Lake Havasau City. Can you give me some feedback? We plan to be in your town on 7/7/05. Thanks, Brad

Barb,My wife and I go to laughlin often.Stay away from the covered wagon .Terrible prime rib,and canned veggies.The comedy show at the flamingo is very good,and pretty cheap.For a great steak dinner try the Hickory Pit in the edgewater.Not cheap,but well worth it.

Hi Mike

Myself and 3 of my friends are riding to Laughlin from Denver in April for the bike festivities. We are all from New Zealand and havent a clue where to stay. Saying that I beleive there is no accomodation left anyway. I have heard that we would be mad to stay in tents. Do you know where I could call to see if they have anything available. We dont mind staying nearby as long as its not to far out of town and we dont mind roughing it if we have to. Your thoughts??

My fiance and I are from Luck WI, and we are coming to Laughlin for the 2 nd year for his Navy reunion, in March. We have thought about buying a winter place there, what do you think? Any suggestions. The cold and snow arent what they used to be as you get older.

What sites should we see as "tourists" and what should we know about buying a place................any help would be appreciated.

Mike: In your estimation, which is the nicest, more upscale hotel in Laughlin? One which would be more for adults [no children.] Thank you...

Joanne: Mike does not seem to be responding to these emails. Our group are just stopping off for one night on ooour way to visit friends in Flagstaff, Arizona. But as a California resident and visitor to Nevada deserts [just not Laughlin] I can tell you that Laughlin seems to be a very casual place to visit. When the average hotel price is $40.00 a night [U.S.] you cannot expect it would be anything BUT casual. The weather will likely be sunny [it is this week] and in the mid 60's to low 70's, but cool at night. Sport shirts, blouses, and slacks or blue jeans would be appropriate. When it is warm enough, I hear tell that people wear shorts in the casinos. I cannot imagine that, but it appears to be true. Anyway, to answer your question: A sweater, cardigan or light jacket for evenings would be essential. I doubt there is a dress code in Laughlin. Hope this helps and have fun!

I agree with the previous comment. Laughlin is very casual. jeans,tshirt, shorts,tank tops, hawaiian shirts etc would be fine. Business casual (dockers & shirt) if your comfortable with that for the evening meals at the restaurants or buffets. Have fun!
