Lake Havasu is best known for its boating, fishing and sightseeing, and for being the new home to the historically famous London Bridge. Many who come to Lake Havasu are quite surprised to find that the bridge is the real thing – and not a gimmick. You can take a cruise on an authentic paddlewheel boat across the lake, and explore for trinkets and treasures in an authentic English Village – all at the same place. The backcountry surrounding the Lake is virtually undiscovered by the many tourists and outdoor enthusiasts and offers miles of quiet, seldom-visited lands including 6 wilderness areas, historic mines, abandoned town sites, unique wildlife, interesting geology and numerous trails and roads for adventurers who like to explore. The diverse landscape ranges from sand dunes and rugged canyons to mountains and basins, and adding to the textures and shapes of the region are the diverse flora and fauna. Towering Saguaro Cactus stand guard along the hillsides, along with Ocotillo, barrel and prickly pear cactus, Bighorn Sheep, Coyotes and over 200 species of birds and wildlife. The Bill Williams National Wildlife Refuge is located at the south end of the lake. It’s a fascinating region of the country, especially for those who love exploring the “out of the way” places and the “road less traveled.” Whether you come for a week, a month, six months or permanently, Lake Havasu and Lake Havasu City offer a cool bit of paradise in the Arizona desert.
