Laughlin, Nevada, is the right family reunion destination for many reasons, most notably because it’s a great value and easy on reunion budgets. Comfortable resort accommodations at amazing group rates and reasonably priced food choices make Laughlin a remarkable value for budget-sensitive groups. Three- and four-star properties offer many amenities, such as multiple onsite dining options (including national chains), room service, spa salons, fitness centers, free parking and no resort fees. Saving money on rooms means more money to spend on activities, entertainment and shopping.

Laughlin has activities that appeal to every generation and range from very active to “soft adventure.” For outdoor enthusiasts, there are easily accessible jet ski and SeaDoo rentals on the river walk, fishing for striper and trout, or kayak and canoe outings. Hike Grapevine Canyon to see Indian petroglyphs, jog on the North Reach trails paralleling the river, explore surrounding desert terrain via 4×4 on a guided tour, or just soak up the sun poolside. Those who want to hit the links can choose from four 18-hole championship courses within minutes of Laughlin resorts.

Indoor activities include a 50-store outlet mall, two classic car museums, 34-lane state-of-the-art Cosmic Bowling, 15 screens in two movie theaters, and 24-hour casino gaming for adults. Don’s Kid Kastle at the Riverside Resort Hotel is a licensed, supervised children’s play center for 2- to 12-year-olds.

Families can charter a river boat for a dinner cruise or take a jet boat ride down the Colorado River on a 36-passenger cruiser. Or take a half-day trip to visit an old mining town on Route 66, see Keepers of the Wild wildlife habitat, or visit Grand Canyon Caverns. Nearby community parks are perfect for an old-fashioned outdoor barbecue or picnic.

Overall, Laughlin is a relaxed, friendly destination where everyone feels welcome. It’s about having a fun experience and spending quality time with family and friends.
