Laughlin, Nevada Homes
Laughlin is a stop-over place for a night for travelers on I-40, a place for RV-ers to stay for a night and even a couple of weeks. When the drinking age was 19 in the 1970s in Arizona, the younger California crowd flooded to the river to play. Now, as a fun river sports town, those same people keep coming back. Laughlin is also a gambling tour bus trip destination year-round for Southern Californians and Arizonians.
Hotels in the area work together to provide A-List bands and entertainment for the Laughlin Events Center. The Events Center is an open-air venue and is a big draw. With limited parking, luxury buses are used to transport hotel guests and locals to and from events.
Buses have been a solution that minimized pollution and increased safety by bringing people into the hotels before and after every event.
We recently spent a weekend in Laughlin that included a concert. Luxury buses were great, and I thought they have the system down to a science. The event attracted young, old, families, residents, and tourists. There wasn’t an open seat at a machine or a table game in the entire casino after the show. Before the show, the restaurants were packed.
Laughlin’s Visitor Authority has done a fabulous job marketing and promoting Laughlin. As was learned in Las Vegas in the 1990s, hotel growth means population growth, which means “The Land of Opportunity.”
Laughlin homes range from $100,000 for a 2 + 2 condo to a 5 bedroom house in a gated community priced in the mid $300,000. Many Laughlin homes are in gated communities appealing to the “lock and leave” vacation and snowbird home lifestyle.
Laughlin residents enjoy the tax benefits that Nevada offers, which attracts many retirees and families alike. Laughlin has both family and adult entertainment and the easy-going life-style 0f the Colorado River.
Housing prices haven’t appreciated rapidly but remain constant. New tract housing, resale homes, and customs homes in all price ranges are available.

Don Laughlin purchased the southern tip of Nevada in 1964 and founded Laughlin. The 2010 Census put Laughlin’s population at 7500 and Bullhead City across the river at over 40,000. However, the population numbers for both cities undoubtedly have increased in the last decade.
Many of the Laughlin casino employees live in Bullhead City, Arizona. Nevada has the entertainment industry, and Arizona has the local crowd businesses. Across the river in Arizona, there is a state tax unless you earned your income in Nevada. Since Bullhead City housing is less expensive, many casino employees live there.
Located about 90 miles from Laughlin, Las Vegas has the privilege of being the closest International Airport and an occasional shopping venue. Kingman, Arizona is 33 miles away and supplies the major medical and most things that Bullhead City and Ft. Mojave cannot supply.
If you consider a move to Southern Nevada, the downside to living in Laughlin is that employment opportunities are limited on the river’s Nevada side. However, there are now 10 casinos that call the city home and provide multiple employment opportunities.
In March of 2020, Laughlin’s only grocery store closed due to the hotel/casino industry closing down for Covid-19. Residents had to drive 11 miles to the nearest food store. Upon reopening, a new super-modern grocery store opened to the delight of the entire community.
