Lake Havasu City embraces the best Arizona activities in one amazing destination
Welcome to Lake Havasu City. We’re known as “Arizona’s Playground,” and for good reason. This is the off-roading, ultralight-flying, boating, personal watercraft, and rock climbing capitol of the Southwest! It’s also one of the must-see places to see in Arizona, a great spot to kick back with friends and watch the world pass by as you relax by a sparkling lake in Arizona’s warm desert.
Seeking the best Arizona activities for fun and play? We’ve got that covered.
Get wet and wild on one of the best boating lakes in Arizona, get off the beaten path on Arizona ATV trails and hiking trails through the desert and nearby mountains, or get a bird’s eye view while soaring above the scenic landscape in a helicopter, vintage aircraft, or hot air balloon. In a place with more than 300 days of sunshine a year and some of the best Arizona activities brought together in one amazing destination, we won’t need to remind you to get out and enjoy!
Lake Havasu City was made for families looking to enjoy a fun vacation in Arizona. Unlike some other lakes in Arizona and across the country, you can frolic on our sandy Arizona beach without dangerous currents or sea critters.

When the Southwestern sun gets a bit too hot, there’s a welcome retreat with a wave pool and waterslide at the Lake Havasu City Aquatic Center. Hot summer days make it one of the best small indoor waterparks and popular things to do in Lake Havasu City.
