2800 South Boulder Highway,
Henderson, Nevada 89002

The Railroad Pass is owta town. It’s on the road to Kingman, Arizona (about 100 miles) or if you do a 180, it’s about 20 miles or so back to Las Vegas. This very cool place is a road-house type hotel and casino just off the highway in Henderson, Nevada.

It’s Old Vegas. In fact it’s 1931 Old Vegas, at least that’s when The Railroad Pass was built. The Railroad Pass boasts the first and longest running gaming license in Nevada. The surrounding country side and view of the stretch out to Searchlight are things that Steve Wynn and all of the other moguls in Las Vegas couldn’t replicate, duplicate, triplicate, or fournicate. Ever! I think I may have gone a bit too far with fournicate. I don’t think it’s a word.

Awaken early and open the drapes to the early morning sun shinning over the desert expanse to Searchlight and other points south. It’s a better way to start the day.

Modest hotel rooms, an Old-West saloon and gambling hall, and modern – but not pretentious – restaurants (3) provide everything you need for a great time in this peaceful setting on the fringe of HOOVER DAM.

In the 90s when I was dry-docking in a motor-home and the streets of Las Vegas began to close-in, I’d scoot up the highway to The Railroad Pass for a night of sanity in the wide open spaces.

The Railroad Pass is now part of The MGM-Mirage Group.
