Welcome to Bullhead City & Laughlin
Laughlin definitely has more sizzle than Bullhead City and is known by a number of nicknames: 'Vegas on the cheap,' the 'un-Vegas,' the 'anti-Sin City.' All that's fine by this gambling town, founded in 1964 by gaming impresario Don Laughlin, a former fur-trapper from Minnesota. The image of good, clean fun (no leggy showgirls, no sleazy types touting escort services) is a winner with the blue-haired set and, increasingly, families looking for an inexpensive getaway.
Skip either town in summer when temperatures often soar to a merciless 120°F (almost 50°C).
