This is one of the best kept secret vacation spots in the west! People are friendly, well policed, good prices on hotel and dining. I bring my family here from Las Vegas 2-4 times a year.

Stop by the visitor's center for a map of the light house locations. You can't reach all of the lighthouses but able to get to many of them.

Superb for boating and lake fishing, this body of water attracts crowds. Please be aware that there is no speed limit on the lake so you may get buzzed by a high power watercraft at some point in your visit.

My wife and I came here to have my dad's car worked on at the dealership and we had some medical appointments in town. This was a nice day trip and we are looking forward to more trips here in the future.

We're passing through and decided to stay a few nights in our RV. There is plenty to see and do here plus every type is store you'd want (except for Costco). The night skies are brilliant and the lake is enjoyable. We can't wait to come back and stay longer next year!

We enjoyed the Lake HAVASU balloon festival. It was so well organized and very affordable. We could watch the balloons from just about anywhere in the city. They were beautiful flying over the lake and a photographers dream.

This is a beautiful place to relax, play, enjoy the views, and marvel at the accomplishments of a man who flew over a lake and envisioned a city. We had a great time during our stay here. There is truly something for everyone.
