    I will be in Vegas for close to 2 weeks on this up coming . Which company is the best to call and make a reservation for an up and back trip to Laughlin. It's been a few years since I've used a bus to get to Laughlin. Thanks for any input.

    You do realize that it will be outrageously hot in Laughlin this time of year, right? Worse than in LV.

    It's typically about 5 degrees warmer in Laughlin in summer vs LV. Is a temperature of 110 vs 105 going to make that much of a difference that someone is going to forego a side trip because the 5 degrees makes it "outrageously hot" vs the outrageously hot 105 in LV?

    Now to put the thread back on topic. The day trip bus business to Laughlin for some reason isn't as big as it was years ago. I don't see these bus trips advertised as much anymore. But, here is one that is still free to Laughlin

    Thanks for the info. A very good reply. I've been to Vegas over 50 times so it could be 120 degrees and it wouldn't matter to me. Now if they took out all the slot machines or stopped selling Alcohol then I would just stay home and save my Money. Gosh I hate saving money. Be there tomorrow.

    Is the store called 'watchworld' still inside Don Laughlin's Riverside Resort ? They claimed to be the store with the most watches in the world.
    I always visit this shop to buy some watches. 2 years ago it was still there.

    I believe they throw in a free trip with a big bus ticket. Might be a combo. Worth checking out if its a day trip
