Great ways to play. . .that will cost you little or nothing!

Ready for the best part? A full day of relaxing on our lake beaches, swimming in the pristine blue waters of Lake Havasu City and romping in the desert will cost you nothing! We think that’s a pretty good deal. But there are so many more great ways to play here on a budget. Here are just a few:

Aquatic Center

The lake isn't the only place to cool down and refresh yourself in Lake Havasu City. For the price of a meal at a fast food restaurant, our lifeguard-patrolled, temperature-controlled indoor Aquatic Center offers year-round aquatic recreation for all ages. The indoor waterslide, two heated pools, wave pool, lap pool and outdoor splash area provide hours of family fun.

If you're looking for a soothing way to shrug off the stress of everyday life, try a water yoga or Tai Chi class. Treat the kids to a dive-in movie, costume party or other special event. When the temperature rises and you're looking for a refreshing change of pace from the lake, there are few places more inviting in Lake Havasu City than the Aquatic Center!

Fishing

Hook and line fishing is easy, inexpensive and a fun, family-friendly activity. For about $50.00 or less, you can buy a decent rod and tackle at a department or sporting goods store and a one-day fishing license. That's a small price to pay for the many large fish you can catch on Lake Havasu! It's where anglers enjoy some of the best fishing in the Southwest, while taking in plenty of sunshine, fresh air and amazing scenery.

Lake Havasu City Parks

Lake Havasu City parks are popular attractions, and for good reasons. Whether you're looking for a traditional park setting with play equipment, tree-lined walkways and lush grassy areas, or one with a white sandy beach leading you to explore Lake Havasu's sparkling blue waters, Lake Havasu City boasts outstanding recreational facilities. With three dog parks, Lake Havasu City is a popular pet-friendly destination. We even have boat-accessible parks and the largest multiuse skate park in the Southwest! Keep your eye on our Events Calendar for parks that host free public events and activities throughout the year.

The bottom line: Arizona has plenty of places for budget friendly vacations, but none so affordable and fun as Lake Havasu City!
