During some Sunday morning football and me catching up with some blog activities my husband announced that there will be a new TV show called Viva Laughlin. Of course he couldn't say it without laughter. I didn't think it was funny at all!
Laughlin is an hour to an hour and a half from the big city. Laughlin, NV has the old Vegas attitude and style, cheap buffets and drinks! The kind people are always looking for when they come here! My reaction was NOOOOOOOOOO all that will be gone! Then I thought, what great PR for Laughlin and a possible boost to their economy!
Laughlin is situated on the Colorado River on the Arizona border. Bullhead City, Arizona is just right across the river. According to city-data.com, Laughlin's 2000 population was only 7076 and according to wikipedia, Bullhead City boasts three times as many residents and supplies most of Laughlin's workforce.
Housing median prices run a bit higher (around $290K) than the Nevada average. Laughlin is well known for it's annual Laughlin River Run, more so than the inexpensive Vegas style lodging, buffets and entertainment.

Congratulations Laughlin, you are now on the map whether you want to be in this light or not! I just wish I would have known the last time I was there. I would have soaked up all of the old charm it espoused! I have pictures and can't find them, otherwise they would be posted right here!
If you are seeking old time Vegas, go visit Laughlin soon!
