Travel Writer Roger Naylor shines a light(house) on Lake Havasu City in a recent Arizona Republic newspaper story that lists the 13 top reasons why people like to live in Arizona.
Naylor, author of Boots and Burgers: An Arizona Handbook for Hungry Hikers (2014), praises the root beer at Mr. D’z Route 66 diner in Kingman, the burros of Oatman, the Desert Bar in nearby Parker, and, no surprise here, the 25 lighthouse replicas of Lake Havasu. Each 1/3 scale replica lighthouse is a functional navigational aid for boaters on Lake Havasu.
It just so happens that Lake Havasu City is home to more lighthouses than any other city in the entire country. All of the lighthouses were built and are maintained by the Lake Havasu Lighthouse Club, a nonprofit group of independent citizens dedicated to the preservation, improvement and promotion of Lake Havasu and the Lake Havasu City lifestyle. The lighthouses make an already adventurous boating experience even more beautiful and unique.
