Day Tripping Vegas to Oatman.
Going to Oatman from Las Vegas is a day trip that can provide great picture taking opportunities.
For me when I make a run to Oatman I will go out the 93 through Boulder City, cross the Hoover Dam, then make a stop at Willow Beach. From Willow Beach I go to the old Mining Town of Chloride and then on to Kingman. From Kingman I pick up the Hwy 40 going west and then in a few short miles exit at Shinarump Dr and turn right to the Oatman Hwy Old Route 66 and then turn left and head up to Oatman. This section of road is going to allow you some fabulous picture taking opportunities.
After Stopping in Oatman I head on to Bullhead City and then cross the river into Laughlin. Here you can have a nice meal at one of the Casinos, enjoy the river for a while then head out to the 95 and back to Vegas passing through Searchlight on your way.
Oatman is 125 Mile from Las Vegas
