Lake Havasu Spring Break
Lake Havasu City is a terrific place to play in the sun and water. It is a planned community. Today, Lake Havasu City's population is 38,635. The city sits at an elevation of 482 feet. The temperatures are hot, but the Colorado River is a great spot to cool off and the winters are mild. The winter lows are 37 degrees and the summer highs are 108 degrees.
The city does receive scattered rainfall of 3.82 inches a year. There are so many outdoor activities in and around the city. It is a year round vacationer's paradise. It is also a major population center for southern Mohave County and is one of the fastest growing counties in the United States.
The Lake Havasu' name came from the Havasupai Indians of Northern Arizona . The name means "blue water". The lake was formed by Parker Dam, which was built in 1938. Parker Dam forms Lake Havasu's 45-mile length and 3 mile width. The lake flows into the Colorado River and is at the base of the Chemehuevi Mountains.
Originally, it was a rest camp and landing strip for the Army Air Corps. In 1963, Robert P. McCulloch Sr. purchased the land to build a planned community. McCulloch paid approximately $75.00 an acre for the land. Then, McCulloch joined forces with C.V. Wood, who helped him make his vision become reality.
It was in 1968, when McCulloch began searching for something to make the city unique. At the time, he was in England and he soon discovered a bridge for sale. The multi-arch bridge over the Thames River needed to come down, due to its instability. McCulloch jumped at the opportunity. He bought the London Bridge and had it taken apart piece by piece and reassembled over a man-made inlet on the Colorado River. On October 1971, the bridge was officially dedicated.
There are several attractions in the area that are quite unique. One is the London Bridge, which originated in London and brought over to Lake Havasu City. Just up U.S. Highway 95 north to Bullhead City, then across the Colorado River from Bullhead City is Laughlin. Laughlin is a great spot to enjoy entertainment and casino fun.
Lake Havasu City has so many outdoor activities that will interest people.
There are two wildlife refuges nearby. One is the Bill Williams River National Wildlife Refuge and the other one is the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge. You will see birds and small game in these areas. Lake Havasu City also has two state parks located near the city. The Cattail Cove State Park and the Lake Havasu State Park give water lovers a great place to enjoy the outdoors.
The open stretches of water are perfect for the many bass competitions, annual national outboard championships, sailing competitions, water skiing and international Jet Ski championships.
