Summer In Arizona
What is there to do in Lake Havasu, Arizona?
Beautiful Lake Havasu City is known for its lake, or reservoir which was formed when the Parker Dam was built on the Colorado River in the 1930s. Fishing and boating are popular activities and, during spring break, it can get quite crowded with the number of boats out on the lake. For a calmer, more serene experience, head to Lake Havasu State Park where you can park your belongings on the bright white sand and go swimming. Camping and hiking are also options for you at this park. One of the main attractions in town is the iconic London Bridge, which was deconstructed from its place over the Thames in London in the 1960s before it was shipped to the States and reconstructed here in Lake Havasu.
What is summer in Arizona like?

There are many state parks where you can hike to a swimming hole and several city parks with swimming pools you can use for the day. No matter how hot it gets, there are at least ways you can beat the heat!
