Hawthorne is a small city in Nevada at the south end of Walker Lake.
The main reason for Hawthorne and its adjacent former town Babbitt's existence is to provide housing for the nearby Hawthorne Army Depot (switching to Mapnik on the map settings below clearly demonstrates this). The Depot stores munitions in widely-spaced bunkers in reserve for a major conflict.

If you win...
Chances are that, if you win it big in Hawthorne and you are not a U.S. citizen your winnings will be subject to a 30% withholding tax from the Internal Revenue Service. That $10,000 slot winning can dwindle quite quickly if that is taken off the top. Not to worry though you can reclaim your gambling winnings tax through a 1042-S form. You should get this from the casino so don't lose it: it is your starting ticket to getting your gambling winnings back.

Hawthorne is a small, rural town. Don't expect the usual large hotel-casinos of other Nevadan towns.
- Mono Lake is about one hour west of the town on State Route 359 (which becomes California State Route 167 at the California border).
