I'm thinking of renting a car with a friend on my next trip to Vegas, to go to Laughlin for a two days (1 night) stay, but I wonder if it would add any fun to the holiday over-all, or just makes things complicated? The reason we want to stay the night, is so we don't have to worry about drinking and having to drive back late in the evening. And we don't like those bus tours, cause it limits your freedom so much with the scheduled times etc. The downside is, that if we will drink during our stay there, we won't be able to take the car to get us around Laughlin. One of my favorite things to do in Vegas, is to walk around the Strip (or Downtown) and to be able to hop in- and out- the casinos, bars and restaurants on the way. How is that in Laughlin? Are the casinos and other things at walking distance from eachother? Or are there only huge casino-resorts, with nothing (like bars and restaurants etc) in between? And how is the ambience? Is it any fun? People walking about on the streets with huge slushies and having party time on their mind, like in Vegas? Or mainly serious gamblers who don't want to pay the higher prizes of Las Vegas and are not interested in the glitter and glamour that comes with it? Any experiences to share? Pros and cons please!
