- Paddle boarding
- Jet skiing
- Boat-in dining
4. Visit London Bridge
Many people do not realize that the London Bridge (yes, the one from the nursery rhyme) was dismantled in 1968 and reconstructed in Lake Havasu. As the largest antique ever sold, it’s a must-see while you are in town. The bridge is located in the English Village; visitors can take a tour through the hollow bridge and take part in the iconic love lock tradition.
5. Take a hike
If you visit when the weather isn’t scorching, hiking in Lake Havasu is a must. The sights will take your breath away, with cliffs, waterfalls, and jaw dropping views of the lakes. Hiking in Lake Havasu works for hikers of all skill levels, with extremely challenging long hikes, easy nature trails, and everything in between.
