Lake Havasu City is in one of the nation's most beautiful areas.
Over fifty years after Robert McCulloch’s initial visit, Lake Havasu City (elevation 735 feet) is now home to over 52,000 people and a thriving tourism industry that attracts over 775,000 visitors annually. The community regularly hosts well-known events such as Desert Storm, a world famous boat racing competition, the IJSBA (World Jet Ski Finals), the “Relics and Rods”, a classic car show, the Havasu Island Balloon Festival & Fair, Winter Blast Western Pyrotechnics Show, and other exciting events throughout the year.
The London Bridge, Arizona tourism’s second-largest attraction after the Grand Canyon, attracts thousands of visitors each year and is a popular stroll for people on romantic getaways in Arizona.
Lake Havasu boats low crime rates and little traffic with affordable housing and a low cost of living, making Lake Havasu City the kind of community where parents feel safe rasiing their children.
For the adrenaline junkies in your group, the Havasu 95 Speedway is the most scenic asphalt race track in the American Southwest. With races October through May, it’s a great place to cheer on some of the best racecar drivers in the US. The Speedway is located in the 1100 acre Sara Park, which also holds numerous hiking trails, plus a shooting and archery range.
To unleash your own inner speed demon, visit the Patrick Tinnell Memorial Sports Complex, where you can try skating and bmx biking. Alternately, the Rotary Community Park is a more laid-back recreation area, where shaded walkways, a two mile jogging path, outdoor exercise equipment, and multiple beach volleyball courts offer plenty of opportunities for physical activity. The Rotary Community Park also features picnic pavilions and plenty of places to sit back and relax or have a leisurely swim. And of course, no visit to Lake Havasu would be complete without a game of Disc Golf!
Finally, the main Lake Havasu tourist attraction...is Lake Havasu itself! With its warm, peaceful waters, the lake is perfect for swimming, kayaking, and boating. Splash in the waters and play in the sand at London Bridge Beach, where a buoyed-in swimming area near the bridge provides the perfect setting to swim, play beach volleyball, or have a picnic--all within easy reach of the amenities of Lake Havasu City. Slightly further from the beaten track is Lake Havasu State Park, a beautiful protected area where you can walk, hike, and enjoy the beauty of nature.
