Laughlin to Las Vegas

Where are we today ?
Las vegas

Tues. Mar.13
We left Laughlin 9:00am for the 90 mile drive to Las Vegas. All uphill we did one stretch for 14 miles at an 5 to 7 % grade up to about 3,700 feet.(full throttle 45mph in second gear) Coming into Las Vegas was something that looked like smog or dust over the whole city. We arrived at Arizona Charlie’s Casino and Campground on the Boulder Hwy. at 11.00am and checked onto our site. We could get only 2 nights (most campgrounds were full) because of spring break and Nascar. We took a drive to the strip and Freemont St. in the afternoon. It was a very warm 92 F. On our way back we stopped at Sam’s Town, a huge Casino, hotel and RV park down the street from our place. Very nice.
After supper we went back for the Freemont St. Experience. An amazing video and sound show over the whole area of old Vegas about 4 blocks. The cost of this was 70 million dollars. A must do when in Vegas.
Then we drove down the strip to check out some of the lights and sights at night also very impressive.
