    We also travel to Vegas each year. This past March we travelled down to Laughlin. It is about 2 hours by car from Vegas. Its on the border of Nevada and Arizona. The Colorado river runs through Laughlin. It is quite a beautiful little town. The hotels were smaller and much quieter than we expected. I think that is why most people get out of Vegas for a day trip here. We spent the day out here,& the drive was also a great part of our day trip. The desert is gorgeous and the roads go forever. See my album for photos of Laughlin! If you have the time-- I would say "Go For It!" we really enjoyed our trip here.

    Quite a small town atmosphere. I stayed there in March for 1 night.
    It did seem like a Bus Tour type town.
    I loved the drive too.

    I hate Vegas but really like Laughlin.
    The casinos are open 24/7 but it's nothing like Vegas in that the streets are pretty deserted after about midnight. It has a rep as a retiree destination and it kind of is.
    I stayed at the Ramada once and at the Avi earlier this year. The Avi is isolated but is on a beautiful stretch of the river and fairly close to some shopping across the river in Bullhead. I prefer the Avi. It's ridiculously cheap at certain times of the year on weekdays, and the rooms and other facilities are much nicer.
    There's also a ferry across the river from, I believe, the Edgewater. There's not really anything in Bullhead, but I think it's fun to ride on a boat in Nevada/Arizona.
