Laughlin Visitor Counts for March 2021

LVCVA statistics show March 2021 visitor counts to Laughlin rebound to 111,300 when compared to just 89,100 in February. 

With travel reduced last March due to the pandemic shutdown, year‐over‐year comparisons show a 40% increase while a comparison to pre‐COVID-19 2019 numbers shows visitation down ‐35.9% from March 2019.  

Hotel occupancy in March was up to 52%, from 46.1% in February.   

The Average Daily Room Rate (ADR) in March decreased -6.8% compared to February but the important metric, RevPAR increased 5.2% compared to February.  

When comparing to March 2021 visitor counts to the last pre-pandemic period in March of 2019 the numbers do not look as good.   The recovery is happening but visitor counts in March were still substantially below 2019 levels.
