When I come to town for the Cutting Edge conference, I plan on arriving on Saturday 11/11 and spend two days in Laughlin. I have several things in mind to do, but if there's anything that you know about, let me know.
Yes, I've recently read, and bookmarked, Mike's WoO article about his visit there in 2012. (I'm the guy who created the map for that page!) But I've never been there. And his article really focused on the casinos. I'm more interested in the area in general.
FYI: I normally fly on Sunday to avoid the high Saturday night hotel rates, but I screwed up and accidentally booked a Saturday flight. I coulnd't get a reasonable rate in Vegas, but got a free ($7 resort fee) room at Harrah's Laughlin, so it's a no-brainer. I'll be there for two nights.
I also went to VisitLaughlin.com. No ideas there that I didn't already find out about thru Google research.
Anyway, no real plans for when I get to Laughlin sometime late Saturday afternoon, other than casino hopping.
On Sunday, I figure I'd go for a road trip into Arizona, stopping at Avi first. My points of interest are in Oatman and Kingman. Or anything else in that area?
I also know there is a high-speed boat ride to Lake Havasu. Yeah, the London Bridge is there, but is there any other reason to take that ride? I mean, I'm something of a museum guy. If they have a decent presentation about how the London Bridge was dismantled, transported and rebuilt, then I might be interested, but to just see it? Pass. Unless there's other stuff to do in Lake Havasu. And please don't say 'shopping'. I might spend a few minutes in the gift shops at the locations I already said I would stop at, but that's only because I'm already there. I'm not a shopper, and I'm traveling alone. But if it's really recommended, I might just drive there rather than kill 6 hours by including the boat trip.
On Monday morning, I'm gonna drive to the Riverwalk Trail and walk to Davis Dam. Then head to Vegas, with a stop at the Eldorado Canyon Mine in Nelson.
But am I missing anything? Is there anything else that is a must see?
I know there are things to do in the river (swimming, jet ski rental, etc.), but I suspect that summer will be over by then. What else is there in or near Laughlin?
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood?
Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.
