For $5 we took a bus from Las Vegas, Neveda to Laughlin, Nevada. This used to be a free trip but because of soaring gas prices, they now charge. The Colorado Belle does give a voucher for a buffet so you do get your money back.
The Colorado River Belle is a replica of a 19th century Mississippi paddlewheel riverboat on the west bank of the Colorado River. Even the inside is designed like a riverboat.
There is even some fish outside in a little pond in front of the Colorado River Belle
I thought this had been a real riverboat at one time because it is made so sturdy, but I was wrong and it is just a replica.
