Planning Laughlin Holidays
Though Laughlin does have its own airport, flights to the area are infrequent and most people find it more convenient to fly into Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport before making the straightforward 1.5 hour journey south by car, though bus travel is also an option. Alternatively, holiday-makers can reach Laughlin by car from Los Angeles (5.5 hours), San Diego (6 hours), or Flagstaff (3 hours). Laughlin's desert climate means summers are often amongst the hottest in the United States, with temperatures exceeding 40 degrees common during July and August. During the rest of the year, temperatures range from 20 to 30°C and are ideal for outdoor pursuits. Whilst it is recommended to travel by car to reach Laughlin, visitors can walk or use taxis to get around. Laughlin is in the Pacific Time Zone (GMT-8).
