Most visitors head to Laughlin instead of Las Vegas, because it’s not a complicated and busy. Yes there’s casino’s and that’s a very big draw, but there’s other things to do there in it’s awesome weather, like boating, fishing and frees stuff.

Spend some time at Don Laughlin’s Riverfront Resort where there are over seventy antique and rare vintage automobiles on display. And of course, being a gambling town, as one would expect, there are a bunch of old antique and very interesting slot machines and poker tables too. You can find this display in the South Tower on the 3rd floor, and browse to your heart’s content, for free.

For both young and old visitors, who can pass up the chance to ride on a turn of the century steam train? If you visit the Tropicana Express on S. Casino Drive, you can jump on the “Genoa” and take a ride through the 27-acre casino property on any Saturday through Wednesday, for free.

Another “free” activity is to enjoy something that’s available in most casinos, including those in Laughlin, but rarely appreciated. Why not relax and spend some time in one of the casino lounges, where the casino offers live performances, and in some cases no cover charge. Although there may be a required 2-drink charge, what’s a couple of beers going to coat you, for am hour or two of free entertainment? In particular, the Colorado Belle has a long standing Dixie River Band playing every Thursday through Saturday evening.

There’s also the Caboose Lounge located in the Tropicana that offers you free live entertainment.
