Lake Havasu City, AZ: Arizona’s West Coast Playground
Imagine Arizona and beaches probably aren’t the first, second, or third thing that come to mind. But the little city of Lake Havasu has just that. Beautiful sandy shores line Lake Havasu, inviting swimmers and boating enthusiasts alike to escape the desert heat. Palm trees sway in the breeze, giving Lake Havasu City a tropical vibe. Rotary Beach spans a full 40 acres, but nearly every part of the lake is open to swimming.
Just off the shore lies the London Bridge. This isn’t a chintzy replica of the one in England—it’s the actual London Bridge that once spanned the Thames. It was bought by the city’s founder in 1968, shipped to Arizona, and then reassembled. The bridge itself is perfect for romantic strolls, but it also connects visitors and inhabitants to a 3.6-mile cycling trail.
Those seeking more adventure won’t have to look far. Lake Havasu City’s SARA Park welcomes mountain bikers as well as BMXers to its myriad desert trails. The hiking trails vary in difficulty. Finally, a trip to Havasu Landing Resort & Casino has adventure of a different sort with 245 slot machines and plenty of table games, from blackjack to poker.
