Our family really enjoyed the short trip. You must visit to understand lake Havasu. First thing you should see is London Bridge. Second thing will be the Lake Havasu Museum, to find out who brought the bridge and who they reconstruct.

Very clean and beautiful lake. Nice distance mountain view . Has no wave zone so both residents and travellers enjoy safe and quiet place. No fish close by shore at this time of year. They say the fish are in deeper water in May.

Can you rent jet skis in Lake Havasu and roughly what does it cost? It has been a long time since I've been on one but want to take my family to the lake soon. Any recommendations?

Yes you can rent them. They have a ton of places renting them. Check it on the internet. You can have great savings and rent them for the whole day if it's not during the weekend.
can you kayak in Torock gorge? Is there anywhere that hires them? Thanks

We are looking for places in Havasu popular with snowbirds, restaurants, happy hour, dancing and dance lessons, activities for snowbirds, etc. Where do the snowbirds hang out?

EVERYWHERE! It IS the town of snowbirds in winter. You'll meet new friends on your first outing! Check out the Aquatic Center as well.
