Top 10 Best Summer Adventures in Lake Havasu Arizona
From bars, bridges, and beaches, Lake Havasu, Arizona, will have you running around in a good way. This vacation spot is slowly rising as one of the best vacationing spots in the United States, and below we have 10 of the best things to do.
Visit before it gets too popular!
1. Havasu Airborne and Waterborne
Hang-gliding over Lake Havasu, Arizona, will go down as one of your all-time best summer adventures.
Not only because you will get amazing views of the desert and city below, but Havasu has hang-gliders that are amphibious.
That is right. These things can land on water and then putz around the lake itself. How cool is that?!
The word just sounds fun. Now imagine off-roading in a 2019 Can-Am Maverick X3 rs Turbo R…sounds pretty hype, right?
If you have ever dreamed of barreling across the sands in something like a dune buggy — like you are in an action movie — then this adventure is for you.
The sights alone are memorable, but the experience of driving one of these monsters will be what you tell all your friends about.
3. London Bridge
No, we are not lost.
This world-famous bridge once stood in London itself, but in 1967 a man named Robert McCulloch had the bridge taken down stone by stone and shipped to Lake Havasu, Arizona.
What a sight to see!
4. Lake Havasu Museum of History
If you loved the history of London Bridge, this museum is a stop you should add!
Learn about the Mavoho Native Indians and the mining culture of Lake Havasu here!
5. Lake Havasu State Park
If you are into camping, fishing, hiking, and all things wildlife, then this is for you.
This option is a nice way to escape the city and reconnect nature.
Plus, the nature around here is ABSOLUTELY stunning. Not only do you get the desert, but sparkling lakes too.
6. Distillery Tour at Desert Diamond
Curious about how rum gets made?
Swing on through this tour to learn the step by step process of molasses being turned to the slow-sipper people love!
7. Beach It
It is not a summer vacation without laying out on the sand.
Lake Havasu itself has dozens of opportunities for you to stretch out and relax on the sand. Seize the moment to work on your tan, read a book, rent a boat, or sip a drink while relaxing!
8. Up, Up, and Away
If you are not into gliders, try a hot air balloon.
Taking a hot air balloon ride around Lake Havasu will give you a chance to see the land from above, at a little slower of a pace, but still one just as memorable.
9. Pedal, Pedal
If you are into biking, we recommend checking out some bike rentals to explore the city and biking trails surrounding the city.
Dune biking is something not everyone can say they have done!
10. Desert Bar
Live as they did in the old days.
Desert Bar is powered by solar energy and is literally in the middle of the desert. If you are looking for something to wet your whistle and amazing food, this is your oasis in the desert.
