Thinking of taking my first trip to Laughlin, but don't know really much of anything about it.
Just a few things about me. I'm 44, will be coming with my wife, who is 38. Have been to Vegas dozens of times dating back to 1999. Not a fan of the Vegas Strip, and have stayed Downtown exclusively since 2001.
We're both 'foodies', but not food snobs. Just as happy eating a really good burger as we are eating a really good steak. A fancy room isn't needed, but it should be clean. A pool is a plus but not a deal breaker. She's a slot player and I mainly play blackjack.
So just some questions...
Where do you recommend we stay? Are the casinos within walking distance or do you have to drive to them? What are the best places to eat (any and every cuisine) in Laughlin? What are the places to avoid at all costs?
Is Laughlin infested with 6:5 blackjack, which I refuse to play? How are the comps in Laughlin? I haven't had to pay for a room since I left the Strip and I'd like to continue that. Any hosts to recommend?
Anything else that anyone wants to add or recommend, thanks in advance.
