When you purchase Lake Havasu City real estate, you can take advantage of the wealth of natural features and fantastic weather. There are things to do in and around the water, on mountains, on rugged back country terrain, through canyons, on sand dunes or surrounded by well-landscaped city settings. You just have to identify your interest of the day.
This 60 mile stretch of the Colorado River and Lake Havasu draws boaters of every kind to share the bright blue water. Canoes and kayaks explore the coves and inlets along the shoreline and sail boats ride the wind. Motor craft of all shapes, sizes and horsepower enjoy a slow cruise or race at over 100 miles per hour. Meet boating friends and float along together. Jet skis are another popular way to have fun on the lake.
Lake Havasu City loves a party and hosts many festivals and events on the water. Come for the Aqua Palooza and join the parade of “River Rats” enjoying music and fun. The Desert Storm Boaters Extravaganza combines a show and street party with boat races. The IJSBA World Finals is a serious international jet ski competition that draws entrants from around the world.
You can water ski or dive to explore the 88 foot depths of the lake. Swim in comfortably warm water, or just relax on the beach and enjoy the view with mountain peaks in the background. Guided boat tours will give you a pleasant trip around the area. To see more of the natural beauty of the area, take a tour through Topock Gorge.
Fishing is good year round for bass, crappie, sunfish and catfish. There are public access fishing piers and docks in the area. You can launch your own boat from public boat ramps or rent a boat from one of the marinas. Test your skill in the annual fishing tournaments for striper or bass or the Angler’s Choice Team Tournament. Fishing guided trips are available.
LAND LOVER'S ACTION
Lake Havasu City features landscape you’d see in cowboy movies; mountains, cliffs, sand dunes, rugged canyons, red rock formations and cactus. You can find a spot to rock climb, hike, and mountain bike or ride a horse. You can also sail on the wind over the whole area in an ultra light air craft.
Parks range from local dog parks and picnic grounds with boat ramps to the Lake Havasu State Park. You’ll find boat ramps and picnic areas, fishing, swimming and 48 campsites. Explore the diverse natural countryside and look for birds, lizards, big horn sheep or native plant life. Stroll the Mohave Sunset Trail that takes you through the desert land and along the lake’s shoreline. The cottonwood forest at Bill Williams National Wildlife Refuge is the perfect habitat for wildlife such as deer, a wide varity of birds and coyotes.
The terrain here lends itself to more than 20 nearby ATV trails. The Annual World Off Road Championships are held for 11,000 racers at the Crazy Horse Campground. Backcountry hiking and biking in wild, less visited areas provides a challenge. You can get a firsthand look at the diverse geologic features and historical sites of the area. Guided tours are available to help you get acquainted.
Walking trails range from the easy, flat asphalt ribbon of the Island Trail in town to the Cupcake Mountain Trail. Despite the name, this strenuous climb is no piece of cake, but the view from the top is your reward.
