Riverwalk by the Aquarius Casino Resort

We spend alot of time on the Riverwalk in Laughlin.  Year round.   The portion of the Riverwalk by the Aquarius is very nicely maintained, clean, safe, with great views of the River and Mountains.  All the other Casinos except River Palms and Harrah's are within a fairly short walking distance from the Aquarius.

Here is our latest picture tour of the Riverwalk outside the Aquarius.  Pictures taken in November 2013. 

When you come out the back entrance onto the Riverwalk, the Riverside Casino is to the left and the Regency and Edgewater are the first ones to the right.

A circular sitting area just outside the doors is a nice place with some shade and a great view. 

Just outside the Riverwalk entrance of the Aquarius

View of the Colorado River

The Cove Bar and Lounge is just inside the doors.

Part of the Cove lounge seating overlooks the Riverwalk and the Colorado River (see below)

Benches line this section of the Riverwalk 

Duet Coffee and Wine (with free wifi) is inside the Casino

This section of the Riverwalk was recently landscaped.  Much of the overgrowth of trees was cleared to make for a nicer look and a better view of the River.  New flowers and plants were put in. As you continue walking you reach the end of the Aquarius section of the Riverwalk.  The Riverside Resort and Casino is just ahead.

Outback Steakhouse is inside, located on the Casino floor. 

As you start walking down the Riverwalk there is another entrance. This enters right by the Windows on the River Buffet and leads back into the Casino. 

Panda Express is also located in the Casino

A large McDonalds is located in another corner of the Casino
Looking back down the Colorado River toward the Aquarius and Edgewater.
The Regency is a small casino (no hotel) nestled just between the two.
 If you head down the Riverwalk toward the Edgewater Casino, the first thing you see are The Rocky River Adventure sales shack and the Celebration River Cruise sales booth.

Rent Waverunners and more
Celebration Cruise -  Day cruises and Dinner Cruises are available.

This "cruise director/saleswoman" will most likely stop you and tell you all about the cruises.   Unlike how you are accosted in Vegas, in all of Laughlin this is one of the only sales pitches we have seen on the Riverwalk or Casino Drive.  We have probably been asked a hundred times.  One of these times we will try it out, just to see what it is like.  Just 10 dollars for the daytime cruise.  

The Celebration 
Everything is for rent on the Riverwalk.  

Just about 400 steps down the Riverwalk you will come up to the Regency (the small building in front of the Edgewater).  This marks the end of the Aquarius portion of the walk. 

Other features:  Right behind the Celebration sales booth is the Aquarius outdoor Amphitheater.  This is very small and is rarely used.  Recent acts have included Bill Engvall and Heart.  

The Amphitheater is basically a parking area with a stage on one side and bleachers on the other.  If there is a show, chairs are placed on the "floor" parking lot area.  When there is no show it seems to double as parking for various Aquarius workers.  The bleachers are right in front of the parking garage.  When there is a concert they usually block the view from the garage into the Amphitheater with vinyl covering.  We actually did catch the Bill Engvall show there.  Because it is so small the view is great for all seats.  

As you walk past the Amphitheater the walkway continues along side the hotel and out to the front of the Aquarius on Casino Drive. 

Food Court - McDonalds, Subway and Dreyers Ice Cream.
Panda Express is on the opposite corner of the Casino floor.
The only restaurant not mentioned on the Riverwalk signage is the Vineyard Ristorante.  This has been one of our favorites.  This fine Italian dining spot is located right off the Riverwalk as well.  Some of the seating inside has a nice view of the River.

Below are more posts about other parts of the Riverwalk.
