Fun vacation spots in Arizona
Choosing fun vacation spots in Arizona
can be like sorting through a large box of assorted chocolates–they all look appealing, but which among them will prove most desirable? Lake Havasu City is that rare escape with appealing natural beauty, quickening your natural desires for fun. With more than 300 days of glorious sunshine every year and lots to see and do year-round, it's the boating Mecca of the Southwest and a popular Arizona weekend getaway.
Arizona getaways to adventure
With more than 60 miles of navigable waterways and no speed or size restrictions for boats, Lake Havasu offers possibilities for aquatic adventures as vast as the wide Western sky. It's no wonder why it's well-known as one of the premier vacation spots in Arizona for boating enthusiasts! With its proximity to Southern California, Las Vegas and Phoenix, many boaters in the area have made Lake Havasu their preferred destination for a leisurely Arizona weekend getaway.
Sail the afternoon away at a leisurely pace or carry out your own Jacques Cousteau expedition and explore the depths of Lake Havasu in full scuba gear. Bring the kids out to play on the white sandy beaches and watch them splash, dive and swim in the clear blue waters of the lake. Unsurpassed by any other Arizona getaways
, the opportunities for fun and adventure are limitless!
When it’s time to dry off, head out into the surrounding desert landscape to frolic in the last fringes of the Western frontier, where you'll discover even more fun that this Arizona getaway has to offer. Hike all day through breathtaking red-rock beauty and set up camp underneath the most brilliant night sky you’ll likely ever see. Scoff at antiquated notions like “boundaries” while you roll over gargantuan sand dunes in the area’s many off-road Arizona
playgrounds, or discover an oasis of rock climbing suitable for all skill levels.
