Like the larger and better known Las Vegas, Laughlin is a destination for gambling and entertainment. It is located in the southernmost tip of Nevada at the bank of Colorado River (bordering Arizona), 90 mi (140 km) south of Las Vegas. The town got its name from Don Laughlin who purchased an old motel in the area in 1964 and opened the first casino.
Most people travel to Laughlin by car.
There are charter and seasonal flights from some American and Canadian cities to Laughlin-Bullhead International Airport  in Bullhead, Arizona across the river. The airport is not served by any major airline.
There are guided one day tours from Las Vegas by bus.
The casino-hotels are similar to the ones in Las Vegas; slot machines, gaming tables, restaurants and shopping.
