Located just minutes away from I-40, the area is also served by Amtrak, Greyhound and both seasonal and year-round flights at the Laughlin-Bullhead International Airport. McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas is also less than two hours away, providing access to or from almost anywhere in the world. Most of the Tri-State area's population lives on the Arizona side of the Colorado River, where the medical center is located. Just across the river lies Laughlin, Nevada, with more than 11,000 hotel rooms in a number of casino/hotels and resorts. Gaming, top-name entertainment and award-winning dining help make Laughlin a jewel in the desert. Most non-gaming commerce is in and around Bullhead City, including major shopping and a number of Fortune 500 companies. **Recreation:** The Tri-State community is a veritable paradise for water sports and other outdoor activities. Swimming, boating, scuba diving, water and cross-country skiing, as well as trophy fishing for bass, trout and other species, are available at several locations throughout the region. Only four miles across at its widest point and 67 miles in length, nearby Lake Mohave features 237 miles of shoreline that can be enjoyed year-round. The lakes surrounding terrain includes sheer cliffs, sandy beaches and secluded coves. Lake Havasu is a 45-mile long water recreation paradise less than an hour away. Finally, the Colorado River provides hundreds of miles of navigable water, while the spectacular views of the Grand Canyon and the beautiful cities of Flagstaff and Sedona are only a few hours away. Other recreational activities available in the region include hiking, off-road vehicle sports and hunting. For nature lovers, nearby Mohave National Preserve has 1.6 million acres of protected desert habitat. Located in the heart of the world famous Mojave Desert, this beautiful and tranquil setting showcases a wide variety of natural features including rose-colored sand dunes, Joshua tree forests and mile-high mountains. East of the city, the Black Mountain Range has plenty of possibilities to go off-roading or to explore ghost towns or the old mining town of Oatman where wild burros still roam the streets. An hours drive away are the Hualapai Mountains, usually at least 20 degrees cooler than the desert floor and home to elk, deer, a county park with cabins, campsites and a mountainside lodge and restaurant. Snow skiing is also available within a two- to three-hour drive in the mountains above Flagstaff (to the east) and Las Vegas (to the northwest). Golf is another popular outdoor activity in the region. No less than six courses are within easy driving distance of Ft. Mohave and Bullhead City, including Desert Lakes Golf Course, with a 6,569-yard, par 72 layout just a mile from the hospital.
