Lake Havasu City—located on the Arizona side of the Arizona-Nevada state line—is named for and sits on the eastern shore of Lake Havasu, a section of the Colorado River behind Parker Dam. The lake, with its beaches and famously relocated London Bridge, is the main draw for visitors to Lake Havasu City hotels. The area has a lively atmosphere year-round, with plenty of action on and off the lake to keep you and your family entertained.
Visiting Lake Havasu City
As a popular tourist destination, Lake Havasu City offers the convenience of its own municipal airport. Fly into Lake Havasu City Municipal Airport, and call one of several private shuttle services or taxi companies operating in the local area to take you to your hotel. Stay at hotels in Lake Havasu City from March to September to enjoy the prime season for boating on the lake—boat rentals and boat tours are widely available. You can also go jet skiing or fishing, or just spend your days soaking up sun on the city's sandy beaches. Popular beaches include the 40-acre Rotary Beach, the largest public park and beach in the city. It features playgrounds, volleyball courts, picnic spots, and a designated swimming area. London Bridge Beach has similar facilities and offers views of the bridge, a major tourist attraction that was purchased and shipped from London in the 1960s. Lake Havasu State Park, also on the lakeshore, boasts white sand beaches, mountain views, and access to the scenic Mohave Sunset Trail. Rent a car in Lake Havasu City, and take a road trip to Las Vegas, which is approximately 150 miles north, or to Phoenix, which is almost 200 miles south. Look into hotels in Phoenix for a night or two so you have time to see such attractions as the Heard Museum, Desert Botanical Garden, and Arizona State Capitol.
