Don Laughlin's Riverside Resort Hotel and Casino

1650 S. Casino Dr., Laughlin, Nevada, 89029, USA

Town founder Don Laughlin still runs this northernmost joint himself. It's a city within itself—bowling, movies, concerts, you name it—sprawling with piecemeal additions that even straddle over Casino Drive with a pedestrian pass. The Loser's Lounge, with its graphic homage to famous losers, such as the Hindenburg, the Titanic, and the like, is consistently a popular nightspot in Laughlin. Don't pass up Don's free classic-car showroom, with more than 80 rods, roadsters, and tin lizzies.
