Don Laughlin's Riverside Resort Hotel and Casino Review

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 the most popular nightspot in Laughlin. Don't pass up Don's free classic-car showroom, with more than 80 rods, roadsters, and tin lizzies.
