  • Awesome home for 2 family reunion!

    "This home was perfect for our 9 People and 2 small dog family reunion! The lay out was open and spacious giving everyone their own space and providing a great family gathering room for meals, cooking and TV or games. Everything was pristine and ready for use. We love to cook and were pleasantly surprised to find everything stocked in this home we needed for breakfasts, drinks and dinners. The pool was nicely laid out and provided wonderful relief from the 100%+ days after boating on the Lake. The 3 bathrooms plus extra outdoor shower were perfect for our family with 6 young ladies in our group. They even had a game closet and puzzles which made for great relaxing entertainment the entire family could enjoy together. We highly recommend this property! We hope to enjoy it again 😊."

Colorado River Area Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Visit West Arizona Vacation Rentals

West Arizona enjoys a warm year-round climate. This makes it an ideal vacation destination. Even when most people in the United States are hiding under layers of clothing, visitors to Arizona can be enjoying water sports without having to put on a wetsuit. Lake Havasu is one of the region's great attractions along with the mighty Colorado River. The western part of Arizona is therefore a favorite destination for those who enjoy water sports. The summer months can get particularly hot and most people prefer to visit during the cooler winter months when the daytime temperatures aren't quite as scorching.

Fun in the Sun at West Arizona River Rentals

Many of the vacation homes in western Arizona are located along the lakeshore of Lake Havasu or on the banks of the Colorado River. This provides easy access to the water for a wide range of water sports. Power boating and waterskiing are favorite pastimes. During the school vacation season, you can see many families enjoying a day out on the water. Jet Skis are sometimes available to rent or you can bring your own along. Sailing is another popular activity on the lake. For people who prefer more leisurely activities, the waters offer excellent fishing opportunities. Find out from the locals about the best lakeshore fishing spots and you may be able to hook some bass, crappie or bluegill.

If you prefer to stay on land, there are many nature trails to explore along the lakeshore. There are also several wildlife sanctuaries where you can go birdwatching. The Havasu National Wildlife Refuge is home to some of North America's rarest bird species such as the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher and the Yuma Clapper Rail. No visit to Arizona is complete without seeing the countryside from the saddle. There are local outfitters that offer horseback rides in Western Arizona. For anyone who has an interest in history, there are several museums which have interesting exhibits showcasing the area's culture and history.

Interesting Landmarks near West Arizona Vacation Homes

Perhaps one of the most famous landmarks is London Bridge. This bridge once spanned the Thames in London but was decommissioned because it started sinking into the river. A local industrialist purchased the bridge from the British government, had it dismantled and shipped to Arizona. There it was rebuilt and now stands tall as a famous landmark of Lake Havasu City. The bridge was officially opened in 1971 and every year there is an annual 10-day festival that takes place to commemorate the bridge.

Yuma is an interesting area where you can see many historic sites. These include seeing an old Wild West prison cell and the Quartermaster Depot. There is also the Sanguinetti House Museum in Yuma. All of these historic landmarks provide some unique insight into life of the Wild West in Arizona during the 1800s.

Oatman is a quaint old-fashioned gold mining town that can be found along the famous Route 66. The town is characterized by old shops and saloons where you can enjoy some western style. The town has some resident wild burros that forage around town for carrots and other treats from visitors.
