Lake Havasu City is located on "Arizona's West Coast," tracing the Colorado River's mighty path which forms the state line between Arizona, Nevada and California. Its proximity to the water makes Lake Havasu City a playground for active visitors who like to go boating, jet skiing, hot air ballooning or ATV riding. The city's centerpiece is the London Bridge, which was brought to and reassembled over a canal off Lake Havasu in the early 1970s, and today serves as the city's foremost attraction.
Hotels in Lake Havasu City are largely categorized as limited service or motel-style accommodations, but there are a handful of resort-like accommodations, with restaurants and access to tours.
Lake Havasu City is a popular spring break destination, but the rest of the year settles back down into its usual character as a quiet city for retired folks and active adults. If you're looking for a party, come in March or bring your own party. But if you seek quiet outdoor activities and simply comfortable accommodations, Lake Havasu City is ideal for a short-term stay outside the Grand Canyon. And you can't beat the idea of visiting the London Bridge and the Grand Canyon Skywalk in one trip!
