Many meeting planners also choose Laughlin because of its location in the rugged desert close to historic Route 66, making it perfect for Western-style team building, and its proximity to natural wonders, such as the Grand Canyon, Lake Havasu and Christmas Tree Pass (known for its petroglyphs and rich Native American history). For a short excursion, Hoover Dam and Lake Havasu's London Bridge, brought over from England brick by brick, are just a few miles away. A scenic dinner cruise about a paddlewheel steamboat replica or a boat tour completes the experience.
