To honor the past while moving into the future, the City of Bullhead City is a family-oriented, vibrant community for its residents and businesses seeking careful growth, environmental awareness, an affordable place to live and a high quality of life. In addition to these qualities of life, there are approximately two-million visitors per year that frequent Bullhead and its sister city the popular gaming community of Laughlin, Nevada. Today, tourism continues to be a primary economic activity derived from the Laughlin resort/gaming industry, area water sports, golf, fishing, senior and youth sporting events and the thousands of winter visitors that come to this area for the desert weather and to enjoy more than 300 sunny days a year. Bullhead City has also been referred to as Arizona's West Coast because the City is located on the east bank of the Colorado River near the juncture of Arizona, California and Nevada. Bullhead City serves as the economic hub and retail shopping center for Western Mohave County and Southeastern Clark County, Nevada. It's easily accessible by major highways and a short drive from Los Angeles, Phoenix and Las Vegas.
