Yes, Lake Havasu is the name of the town in Arizona, but the lake itself is actually a reservoir from the Colorado River. With the warm climate, it’s the perfect respite from the heat. Since it is in the desert, the air is dry, making water sports a perfect way to cool off. Many families drive to town with their own watercraft and many others choose to rent them in the area. Spend a day on the water on a pontoon or speed boat or just an afternoon on paddle boats or kayaks. Any type of family can find something to do on the water.
Families will want to avoid the area during spring break since it is a very popular spot for party going college kids. All other times of the year, it’s a good mix of families and other vacationers.
