Striking desert views and real isolation
Nothing to do but the Lake.
A great place to spend New Years with friends
Its a good idea to double check which places to rent boats from. Adventure Center taken in one of my photo's obviously does not have any good reviews on the web. There are others located here, so double check before you rent from anyone first. A good idea is to check with the Visitor Center. Below is a web site for the various boat rentals places...more

The China Buffet Restaurant in Lake Havasu City has a wide variety of well-prepared Chinese food. And it is all you can eat!! The decor is typical of a chinese buffet restaurant, the staff attentive enough. The price was a little chaeper than average, Chicken in Black Bean Sauce. Most any of the seafood.more

Admittedly, this tip is for a limited audience. There is a very active and friendly VFW Post in Lake Havasu City. I came here for a quick Rum and Coke and after the other members bought me three more I had to leave before I drank too much. They were very friendly. This is also the home post for the Regional Commander. No real dress code; but you...more

Anyway it does make dancing the night away that...more

Every year I re-think driving the Havasu..... it's about 10 hours and there is an airport in Havasu..... expensive but America West does fly there. It is cheaper to fly into Vegas but by the time we have ended up renting a car and driving down to Havasu we could have driven from home.... plus the expense of it. But with gas prices lately... even in...more
Seven days a week and 6am to 9pm Mon-Fri, and 6am to 6pm on Sat and Sun is when the City Transit Services run. The public transit is very nice and clean inside. All you have to do is call them from where you are in Havasu and for 3 bucks they'll take you anywhere in the city.more
The Shops at Lake Havasu feature national retail department stores such as Dillard’s and JC Penney, home décor specialty store Kirkland’s, PetSmart, Walmart Supercenter and UltraStar Cinemas.

In 1968, the City of London decided to sell its bridge for $2.6 million to Robert P. McCulloch, founder of Lake Havasu City, who needed a bridge to connect the city to an island in the lake...
We are an older couple (in our fifties) who visited Lake Havasu a few weeks ago. We were ticketed for making an excessive wake on a rented wave runner. We were just learning how to ride the thing and we were barely moving....no way were we being dangerous or destructive or making an excessive wake. We were visiting mid-week and the lake was far from crowded. We were not under the influence and we are not party people on Spring Break. (We had heard that Lake Havasu was tough on spring breakers but thought that we would be ok because we are a middle age family on vacation.) Well... we were mistaken.....and we wont be taken again. The fine was $185 and the letter says that we have to appear in person to even request a hearing and then return again for our day in court.
Thanks to the information we have learned from reading the blogs and news reports....we know we are not alone. Many tourist beside us....are upset about what seems to be a very lucrative "ticketing" policy that effects car drivers and boaters.
We have also learned that is not worth the risk of returning to fight this outrageous ticket (though we only live a few hours away) because the system seems to be designed to make money off of us. According to other reports.... The Lake Havasu Judge has boasted about bringing in money to the city coffers......and he used to supervise the very officers who are targeting the tourist with trumped up tickets. One person called him a modern day Judge Roy Bean......We wish we had done our homework before we left for Lake Havasu.....we hope that our experience is helpful to others planning to visit. All I can say....is at least.....know before you go.......or you might be sorry.
P.S. Can anyone tell me where to get one of those "Boycott Lake Havasu" bumper stickers that I keep reading about?
Bathing suits, warm weather wear, sandles, flip flops, sunglasses, hats, walking shoes, ma'de gra beads (if you are on spring break),cool nightlife outfits and nice shoes.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Aloe Vera Gel, Sunscreen, and the things that you use every day. Condoms!
Photo Equipment: Video camera, camera, underwater camera.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: water toys (rafts,goggels etc), sand toys, towels for the beach,lawn chairs, tent and campground supplies if you plan to stay at Crazy Horse Campgrounds. Beer Keg, beer bong.
Miscellaneous: Lots of money! SO you won't run out.
Lake Havasu wasn't on our trip, but we decided to check it out! It was about 103 degrees when we drove thru there. So I jumped in the lake, and found that there were fresh water clams in the lake. There were power boats and lots of action in the water that day.
Whyte's Trail is 1.5 miles each way and follows the shoreline of Lake Havasu, providing an excellent view of the lower portion of the Colorado River, the Whitsett Pumping Station and Parker Dam. The shoreline portion of the trail ends at Whytes Retreat (called Dog Beach by some), one of the boat-in campsites. The trail is very short "as the crow...more
Lake Havasu City is a retirement town . There is not much to see except for golf courses and mobile home dealerships. They do have the original " London Bridge " which was dismantled in London and rebuilt in the Arizona desert .If you return to Vegas in the late afternoon vis highway 95 and 163 you should get a very interesting view of the Black...more
