Winter resort and retirement center

Lake Havasu City, Arizona, is located on a 40 mile long reservoir on the Colorado River that forms the boundary between California and Arizona. In recent years, the town has grown from a small village to a bustling town. It is a mecca for retired people, many of whom live there all year round, in spite of the fierce summer heat. At the same time, it is a popular family destination - particularly on weekends. The area has also been a favorite of college students on spring break, and developed a reputation as a riotous party spot. Local officials have taken steps, however, to see that Lake Havasu remains a place where families can relax in the sun.

My only visit was brief, the purpose being to take my daughter to visit her future in-laws at their family vacation spot. So, I did not have an opportunity to try any restaurants, the local lodging, or to take many photos.

    That is so cool that you've walked across the London Bridge in both locations! I took a weekend trip here once back when I lived in LA - hotter than blue blazes is right!
