Boulder City Podcast

Nevada's most interesting small town


Podcast With Joe DiSimone, Owner, Railroad Pass Casino

Joe DeSimone admits being overwhelmed by the award he received earlier this year from the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce.

Joe DeSimone doesn’t live in Boulder City or run a business in the city, but in 2019 he received the “Businessman of the Year” award from the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce.

“To say I was honored is underestimating what it meant to me,” he said.
