Outdoor fun at Lake Havasu vacation home rentals

Lake Havasu gets its name from the Mojave word for “blue”—and as it sparkles in the Arizona sunshine, it’s easy to see why. This expansive reservoir on the Colorado River is a year-round paradise for lovers of watersports and nature walks. It’s also the site of one of the state’s more surprising heritage landmarks—London Bridge, which originally spanned the River Thames in the UK capital. Lake Havasu vacation rentals provide an ideal base for exploring this popular recreation area and the diverse attractions of the lively city on its eastern shore.

Things to do

Lake Havasu’s most iconic landmark

London Bridge is one of Lake Havasu’s biggest visitor draws. The historic bridge was disassembled brick-by-brick from its original site on the Thames and carefully shipped across the Atlantic to its new home in 1971. Walking tours of this iconic landmark leave from Lake Havasu City Visitor Center. The nearby Lake Havasu Museum of History chronicles the fascinating heritage of this unique community, from its Native American roots, to the steamboat era, right through to the building of the Parker Dam and the subsequent transformation of a desert backwater into a vibrant 21st-century city.
