Laughlin, NV


This is our view from our free parking spot, which belongs to the River Palms Casino, the high-rise in the photo.


It is basically just a paved parking lot on a terraced hill overlooking the Laughlin strip and the Colorado River.


It’s a great view at night down the strip, though.


Interesting bulb burn out on this sign.


Decided to hang out here for a few days since the price was right and the weather is good. Ate dinner at the Colorado Belle Casino last night. They have a brewpub serving pizza and other sports bar foods. Their micro-brewed beer is only 99 cents a pint, and the pizza was actually pretty good.

Yesterday we went to check out Big Bend of the Colorado State Park,  just 5 miles down the road. It’s a fairly new park, and the campsites are huge with full hookups.  Unfortunately the sites don’t have a view of the river, but the picnic area does.

PB170043 After we leave here we may spend a night there on the way to Lake Havasu.
