day trip out of Laughlin - Oatman and where else?

We've (4 adults) got 2 nights booked in Laughlin, Sun May 19th and Mon May 20th.

Will be arriving on the Sunday from Flagstaff, probably not til around 9pm, so we'll probably just grab some dinner and gamble a little, visit a couple of casinos that night.

The day we leave, Tuesday, we want to be off early as we're heading over to Santa Monica and want to see/do stuff around there.

The full day we have in Laughlin, the Monday, some of the group want to go to Oatman. I figure just a few hours tops for Oatman, and so was wondering if there's anywhere around Laughlin/Oatman that would also be worth a few hours or a morning/afternoon.

We would ideally like to make a day out of it (out of Laughlin) as we'll have already been to Vegas, and have Reno further round on our road trip as well! We can wander the casino and the riverwalk in Laughlin when we get back that evening.

Many Thanks in advance for any help

Hi

On my "to do list" so not been myself but Chloride ought to be worth a trip. I'm thinking of combining it with a trip to Oatman on our next visit.

Also don't forget the river trip from the Riverside up to the Davis dam ($10) a very nice thing to do.

Christmas Tree Pass and Grapevine canyon... about ten minutes north west.....

Needles/Havasu City.... About four hours total.

Best to stay at the hotel and veg by the pool... 102 degrees plus.

Europe cick, did you end up going to Oatman? I also have 2 nights booked at the end of this month and was wondering how you liked it.

My husband and I LOVE Oatman. It's a cute quaint little town where the donkeys roam free. The shops are reasonable and you must try the BUFFALO BURGER at the local bar/restaurant! Just look for the MONEY ROOM - Best burger ever!
