While Buffalo Bill's, Primm Valley Resort, and Whiskey Pete's attract the most visitors, there is much more to do in Primm than its more than 100,000 square feet of gambling space. Buffalo Bill's has the Desperado Roller Coaster, which is one of the tallest and fastest roller coasters in the world. The roller coaster has a drop of 225 feet and reaches speeds up to 80 miles per hour. Buffalo Bill's also has the 6,500 seat "Star of the Desert Arena", which hosts major recording artists, rodeos, boxing, and other events. The casinos have several excellent restaurants and visitors can catch a movie at the Carolee Theatre.
Primm is also home to the Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas. This indoor outlet mall features more than one hundred retailers in air–conditioned comfort. Retailers include the NIKE Factory Store, Tommy Hilfiger Company Store, Williams–Sonoma Marketplace, and Polo Ralph-Lauren Factory Store. It also has a food court.
The Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas is connected to the Primm Valley Resort. In the walkway between the two, there is a rotunda featuring the actual car famous outlaws Bonnie and Clyde were in when they were shot and killed.
Primm has two golf courses at Primm Valley Golf, the Lakes course, and the Desert course. Designed by renowned golf course architect Tom Fazio, both courses are open year round and well kept, with excellent playing conditions. The courses offer a variety of terrain, from lush greens, to gently rolling fairways, to desert landscape, and water features set against the backdrop of the mountains.
Primm has numerous activities for those wanting to get into the outdoors. In addition to golf, the adjacent Ivanpah Dry Lake Bed is a popular area for land sailing and kite buggying. The desert terrain, which includes Joshua Trees, Yucca Trees and Creosote Scrub, and nearby mountains also afford good hiking opportunities. Clark Mountain, which has an elevation of 7,929 feet, is 20 miles southwest of Primm near Mountain Pass, California, is a popular rock climbing area.
There are also numerous wildlife species in the area including the Gila monster, burrowing owl, nesting bird species, coyote, white–tailed antelope squirrel, red–tailed hawk, lizards, rare desert tortoises, the western diamondback rattlesnake and Desert Bighorn Sheep, among others.
Visitors should take precautions to protect themselves from the intense desert sun, as high temperatures average above 100 degrees for most of the summer. The northernmost section of the Mojave National Preserve, which is a U.S. National Park, is in the Clark Mountain Range, only about five miles outside of Primm. Clark Mountain is the highest point in the preserve.
