Primm

Located on the border of California and Nevada, Primm offers the first casinos for those traveling into Nevada (or the last casinos for those leaving). It also has the Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas for anyone looking to do some shopping, and a branch of the Mad Greek Café if you missed the one in Baker.

 

Whiskey Pete’s Casino

Why make Primm a stop? Whiskey Pete’s Casino claims to have on display the very car in which legendary gangsters Bonnie and Clyde were gunned down. They were killed on May 23, 1934, in Bienville Parish, Louisiana.

If that’s not enough, they also have the shirt Clyde was wearing at the time as well as other memorabilia related to the pair.

Dutch Schultz’s 1931 Lincoln adds to the casino’s collection. It was built with bulletproof doors and inch thick glass. After Schultz was murdered in 1935, the car was used by Al Capone’s gang. It was later seized by the Chicago Police and sold at auction.

Finally, a wall on the casino titled “How Vegas was ‘Made'” gives a timeline of mob influence and event in Las Vegas history.
