Luckily, Lake Havasu City, Arizona gets more than 300 days of glorious Western sunshine every year, so your match should strike when you play in the dreamlike desert landscape.
To see water you’ll have to head out onto Lake Havasu which just so happens to be the boating Mecca of the Southwest and one of the most popular Arizona weekend getaways!

With more than 60 miles of navigable waterways and no speed or size restrictions for boats, Lake Havasu offer possibilities for aquatic adventures as vast as the wide Western sky.
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 in one of the best Arizona vacation spots.
When it’s time to dry off, head out into the surrounding desert landscape to frolic in the last fringes of the Western frontier (and find more fun vacation spots). 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.
