I encourage anyone visiting Arizona to stay in Lake Havasu City. The lake is awesome for fishing and boating. Restaurants and bars were top notch in my book. Beautiful women all around the channel. The London Bridge was enough to make my stay worth it, must see!

I was very impressed with the whole city. But was super taken by the London Bridge area and the lake, the food, the friendly people and staff.

Lake Havasu is a HOT place - and usually much warmer than Las Vegas. Quiet little place where you can see the original London Bridge, hire waterjet, swim and go shopping.

We love our annual trips to Lake Havasu! We usually invite 3 to 5 other families taking the kids wake boarding and tubing! We rented a large house to make it easier to plan meals and coordinate boating times, awesome house and awesome trip! TIP if you are going with a family stay away from holidays and weekends. When we... More

This is a resort town. You can reach the beach within 15 minutes, max. Easy driving. Lovely downtown area. Take a walk on the river front. Enjoy one of a few parks. Great location for boating. The water is blue and the shores have clear water.

If you like boating or water activities this town is all about that. Lots of rentals and beaches to hang out on. The beach we went to by rotary park didn't really have send, it was more like dirt, hard dirt. The best place is the channel. We paddle boarded down the channel to the London bridge. It was really...

Family vaca that was a blast! Only problem, it wasn't enough time! 5 days is too short! First-time for our whole family (14 folks) to vacation here and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

I have been coming to Lake Havasu for 5 years now. My daughter and I always go to our waist in the lake but there were hundreds swimming in the sectioned off area at the end of London Bridge and it was 113 so we decided to swim in the marked area Friday and Saturday. My daughter ended up seriously... More

We visited in May and found it to be somewhat boring unless you have a boat for the lake or an ATV to drive in the desert. The one the bridge is a fascinating attraction in architecture and history but that only last so long.

Beg, borrow, or steal a watercraft to make it across the water to the world famous Copper Cove. Sights too risqué for children and those easily offended.
