This bridge was numbered and disassembled in England an then shipped to Havasu where it was re-assembled, It was damaged by an automabile recently and is yet to be repaired.

My family and I spent a day on the lake fishing, cruising & relaxing in the middle of February. The temperature was great, but a little chilly when we were driving at faster speeds. We fished the shores of California near the Chemehuevi National Park and saw a couple of coyotes walking the beaches looking for fish. It was quite... More

It was a great way to spend the afternoon - we rented a pontoon boat and toured around the lake. Stopped at one of the many picnic areas and had BBQ lunch.

Went to Lake Havasu for Rockabilly Reunion and what an absolutely beautiful City. We could see the Lake from our camper. The weather was perfect. I really could live in this city.

I moved to Lake Havasu City a few years ago from the midwest. My husband and I had traveled here previously, fell in love with the town, bought a piece of property and built our retirement home. The beautiful year round weather and the lake are two main reasons why we chose Lake Havasu City. It is a small town... More

I'm gonna retire here. This place is awesome. It's hot, not doubt about that but otherwise awesome. I went shortly before Christmas and it was 80 degrees. The locals were living it up. It is also within 2 hours of Las Vegas!!! Now that's what I'm talking about.

Arizona and California share a super lake. All types of boating available. Take a $2.00 return trip boat shuttle from the London Bridge (AZ) to the native casino (CA) to get a feel of the size of the lake.

My boyfriend has a boat, and we make sure to either come the weekend before or like the Wed/Thursday before a long holiday weekend and make sure to get a boat slip, otherwise you'll be waiting A VERY VERY VERY long time to launch your boat or take your boat out of the water. We rather pay the extra money... More
