Fun is always in season in Lake Havasu City: Arizona's premier outdoor adventure destination. Adult-friendly, kid-friendly and even pet-friendly, Lake Havasu City makes fun vacations easy and affordable. With more than 300 days of sunny skies year-round, you can always find the right mix of attractions, dining, events, relaxation and non-stop action on land, air and water.
The arches under the world-famous London Bridge are a venue for live performances and special events; a grand passageway for boaters, anglers and watersports fans; and a popular subject for photographers, filmmakers, writers, artists and history buffs. With Cruisin’ Tikis Havasu, drink a cold one and float your cares away on a tiki bar as it cruises leisurely under the bridge on the Bridgewater Channel. Think of it as Margaritaville passing through 2,000 years of human history.
Other ways to lap up relaxation in the Bridgewater Channel’s no wake-zone include personal boats and watercraft, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and cabana boat rentals (complete with grills, coolers and leather sofas). And don’t miss the resort wear, snacks, souvenirs and other fun items you’ll find at the charming waterfront shops in the area.
After you’ve snapped a selfie of you standing in front of the world’s most expensive souvenir (yes, that’s actually a thing), learn more about its fascinating story from an expert guide on the London Bridge Historical Walking Tour. Get a preview of all the Instagram-worthy moments on our London Bridge Virtual Tour website.
Fuel up at one of the 140+ restaurants around town, which range from fine dining to flip-flop and pet-friendly. Kick back with a beverage in hand from one of several breweries, distilleries and wineries. Craft beer drinkers everywhere in the city love the budding brewery scene. Local favorites you won’t want to miss include Mudshark Brewery, College Street Brewhouse & Pub, Hangar 24 and Barley Brothers Restaurant & Brewery.
Moms across the country voted Lake Havasu as one of the Top 10 Mom-Approved Places to Fish and Boat in the U.S. The youngest ones will find their bliss toddling around the sandy beaches with a bucket and shovel in hand. Tweens and older will get a kick out of paddle sports including kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and canoeing. Teens can get a license to operate a personal watercraft (best known as a Jet Ski) at 14. And kids of all ages revel in the thrill of tubing, wakeboarding and waterskiing.
Rent or bring your off-road vehicle and explore more than 20 networks of adventure-filled trails. Weather in the fall through spring is ideal for off-roading in the area. For the ultimate off-road adventure, Lake Havasu City provides easy access to the Arizona Peace Trail: a 750-mile long Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Loop that offers diverse trail terrain spanning the most beautiful parts of the southwestern U.S. deserts.
Any skaters, rollerbladers, BMX or scooter riders in your crew will want to know about Tinnell Memorial Sports Park, the largest multi-use skate park in the Southwest. One special feature is a replica military helmet that serves as a roof over a rounded corner to create an inverted rideable surface area. Even the balance-challenged get a kick out of watching the athletes put on a show.
