Primm is a small community in Nevada located next to the California-Nevada State Line. It is located 40 miles south of Las Vegas and 12 miles from another small town called Jean. It straddles Interstate 15 and is the location of several large casino-hotel resorts and an outlet mall. (Jean provides administrative services for Primm and is the location of its post office; it also has a stand-alone casino-resort.)

Get in[edit]

  • If you're driving to Primm from the Los Angeles area or its surrounding counties, drivers can take I-15 North and stay on the freeway all the way to Exit 1 after crossing the California/Nevada State Line.
  • From the Las Vegas area, take I-15 South and get off at Exit 1.

By plane[edit]

There are currently no airports in Primm. The nearest airport to Primm is Jean Airport. It is located 12 miles north, however is restricted to small aircraft. The closest major airports are Henderson Executive Airport and McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.

Get around[edit]

  • Primm is a small community, but due to the Interstate highway bisecting it, it's not easy to walk from one side to the other. However, all three resorts are connected by light rail (throughout their history, and as of 2019, all three hotels are owned by the same company, facilitating such shared access).

Do[edit][add listing]

  • The area's primary attraction are the casinos located within the three resort hotels. Similar to Las Vegas, the resorts have their own additional attractions, such as the Star of the Desert Arena (which frequently hosts big-name concerts), the Desperado roller coaster that winds around the Buffalo Bill's resort, and the vehicle in which 1930s gangsters Bonnie and Clyde died is on display at Whiskey Pete's.
  • The Primm Valley Golf Club is located across the California state line, a short drive south of Primm on I-15.

Buy[edit][add listing]

  • Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas is a large outlet store mall.
  • There is access to a small convenience store on the California side of the state line, where California State Lottery tickets can be purchased. Oddly, this store cannot be reached without traveling through Nevada (where there is no state lottery, hence the store's odd location).
  • Heading southbound, Primm is your last chance to buy gasoline at the usually-lower Nevada prices. Gas prices often jump 15 to 40 cents just by crossing the California state line.
