We had a family trip planned for Cabo San Lucas, Mexico this past week for a wedding and the area was hit by the worst Hurricane in their history. All travel was cancelled. We decided to make the best of it and instead went over to Laughlin, Nevada. I am not too fond of the desert but this was better than I expected.

I’m not a gambler but I truly enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere the area had to offer. Crossing part of the Mojave Desert was a delight. It was greener than I expected. From Oxnard CA, it took us about 5 hours and 30 minutes to get there making a few stops along the way.

The best part for me was the Colorado River. It was clean looking and made the entire landscape look beautiful. Being by the water was soothing.

Mornings and evenings were were not too hot, perfect for a morning swim and an evening walk along the River.  Overall, Laughlin offered a more family oriented and relaxing atmosphere than Las Vegas but I think it had to do, at least for me, with the presence of the Colorado River.
