Lake Havasu City

WATER SPORTS AND THE LONDON BRIDGE – YES, THE LONDON BRIDGE – ARE THE CROWNING JEWELS OF THIS SUNNY CITY, FILLED WITH AS MUCH ADVENTURE AS YOU CAN PACK INTO YOUR SCHEDULE. DISCLAIMER: NOT A CITY FOR PEOPLE WHO MERELY WANT TO OBSERVE LIFE.

Right Now

Nestled on the shores of the Colorado River, Lake Havasu City has been dubbed the “Personal Watercraft Capital of the World,” and is one of Arizona’s premier locations for water sports.

Whether your boating, waterskiing, wakeboarding, paddleboarding, kayaking or swimming, Lake Havasu beckons you to “play like you mean it.” Have a picnic on the beach, enjoy some sand volleyball, and cool off in the calm (and notably shark-free) water. Three hundred days of sunshine means nearly every day is a perfect day to play outdoors.

Looking for some fun on land? Hit the golf course, set out on a hike, feel the air rushing past you on a bike ride, or try your hand at off-roading. There are so many ways to play in Lake Havasu City, you won’t have time to be bored.

When you’re adrenaline is tapped out, the London Bridge is a must-see. The bridge was meticulously disassembled in London in the late 1960s, shipped through the Panama Canal and then reassembled in Lake Havasu City. It’s become Arizona’s second largest tourist attraction.
