Laughlin is a census-designated place (CDP) in Clark County, Nevada, United States.
As of the 2000 census, the CDP population was 7,076, and its population was estimated at 8,998 in 2007
according to an article in December 5, 2007 Las Vegas Review Journal.
Laughlin is a port located on the Colorado River 94 miles (152.3 km) south of Las Vegas.
Directly across the river from Laughlin is Bullhead City, Arizona, which has four times the
population of Laughlin (approximately 39,000) and supplies much of the workforce.
Officially, Laughlin is not incorporated as a municipality.
It is governed by the Clark County Board of Commissioners, which receives advice from the appointed
Laughlin Town Advisory Board, which in turn is headed by a Town Manager (instead of a Mayor).
Police protection is provided by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD),
and fire protection by the Clark County Fire Department.
Laughlin is the third most visited casino and resort destination in the state after Las Vegas and Reno,
and is one of the top 5 destinations for American RV enthusiasts.
The unincorporated township is named for founder Don Laughlin, an Owatonna, Minnesota native
who owns the Riverside Resort and Casino.
Reportedly the name "Laughlin" was chosen for the post office after other proposed names,
including "Jackpot", "Riverside" and "Casino", were rejected by the United States Postal Service.
Laughlin is advertised as a more family-friendly venue than its contemporaries,
and as such has a greater emphasis on outdoor and family activities as opposed to the greater glitz
and adult entertainment found in Las Vegas or Reno.
Many of the casinos that line the Colorado River are linked by an unofficial pedestrian
thoroughfare known as the Laughlin Riverwalk.
