Secondly the size of the lake more than 400 miles of breathtaking coastline with tons of water activities from skiing to wake boarding to para sailing the list can seem endless making Lake Havasu City known as “a water lovers paradise”.Thirdly the famous London Bridge,we all heard the nursery rhyme “London bridge is falling down” well this is where they brought it to,yes,it is the original London Bridge that was brought over piece by piece and restored in this beautiful town where is has been maintained since 1978.
During spring break in Lake Havasu City you can make your way on the lake to a cove well known for it’s all night parties Copper Canyon.Here boaters link their boats to each other and have an amazing wild time.The cliffs that surround this cove give way to many divers,whether it is your first time or you are experienced you will be cheered on by a onslaught of perfect strangers who (if you are of age) would be more than happy to do a shot of any alcohol with you or have a beer with you after your crazy antics.Although Lake Havasu City will now fine young ladies for flashing this seems to be a more “dare me to ” scenario bringing out the bad,the good and unfortunately the ugly because even though you are there to have a good time the Lake Havasu City police will be there as well.
There are many beaches that you can get to to camp all night which seems to be the younger crowds favorites , be ware you will have to walk down an incline to get to them but once you find your area you will find seclusion from the hustle and bustle where you can break free,have a few drinks,play your music,take walks,BBQ and whatever else your heart desires.A helpful hint bring water socks in these areas because of the sharp rocks.Another favored spot is the several beachy areas where they have basketball courts,volleyball nets,baseball diamonds and covered pic nic tables unless you get to these places early you may have a hard time finding a place to hang out,although these areas are very accessible to the lake activities itself they do get rather busy.
