Lake Havasu City Things to Do

Lake Havasu is referred to as “Arizona’s Playground”, and for good reason. The city offers visitors an endless supply of activities and entertainment while they are there. The sun shines nearly every day, making it an ideal retreat for the outdoorsman. Here are some of the most popular things to do while you are vacationing in Lake Havasu City.

Check Out London Bridge

This is the famed London Bridge from the nursery rhyme. It stood for over 100 years, even surviving bombings in two world wars, in the city before it started to fall apart and needed to be replaced. It was then sold and shipped to Arizona in the 1960’s. It stands today in Lake Havasu and is one of the most important landmarks in Arizona, second only to the Grand Canyon. Today, it stands over a man-made canal in the city.

Jet Ski Races

If you like jet ski racing, you should visit during the second week of October. That is when the World Final Jet Ski races are held each year in Lake Havasu. The best racers in the world compete in this event. There are also some dazzling freestylers doing tricks. There are competitions that decide the fastest man, woman, and youth on a Jet Ski.

Cattail Cove
