Lake Havasu Top 12 to Buy Lake House

Lake Havasu City AZ Makes Top 12 City To Buy A Lake House in The US

Travel & Leisure names Lake Havasu City one of the top 12 places to buy a lake house in the U.S.

A new report from TravelandLeisure.com and Evole.com reveals the best places to buy a lake house in the U.S., complete with scenic views, a laid-back lifestyle, and excellent rental potential.




This list of homes features at least 3+ Bedrooms, a pool and decent boat deep garage. 


"When determining the best places to buy a lake house, we look at destinations that have advantages for both potential investors and future guests," Louis Olds, director of real estate at Evolve, told Travel + Leisure. "For investors, we present the Evolve Difference as a way to help lake house owners maximize income and exceed the projected revenue of the market. For guests, we showcase desirable locations that have the right atmosphere for relaxation, natural beauty, and many ways to have fun."

Year-round sunshine, 400 miles of pristine lakefront, and a desert backdrop define Lake Havasu City — a Southwest destination with name recognition for being “Arizona’s playground.” It draws a steady stream of visitors (835,000 every year, in fact) from major metros like Phoenix, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas to enjoy water sports and untamed off-road trails.

To get the best results form a vacation rental home purchase in Lake Havasu, it must have all the amenities renters are looking for. With the busiest rental market season being the summer boating months, renters like to sleep as many people as possible, want a pool and outdoor hangout BBQ areas and somewhere to park thier boat. The closer to a launch ramp the better!

Desert Bash & Off Road Poker Run 2022

Desert Bash & Off Road Poker Run Presented by Anderson Powersports

Desert Bash & Off Road Poker Run Lake Havasu 2022

Our lake offers hours upon hours of fun. But even in the desert, the water gets a bit cold during the winter. Thankfully, Havasu is surrounded by over one million acres of BLM land (Bureau of Land Management). That means that playtime continues on land when the water gets a bit on the chilly side. If you are looking for something fun to do, sign up for the Lake Havasu Desert Bash.

The rest of the country may be held prisoner to freezing cold rain, bitterly chilling temperatures, and even hurricane watches. But not here in Havasu. Yes, our temperatures have fallen a bit. However, we still enjoy boats on the water, playing in the dirt, and camping in the middle of the desert. If you want to "up" your toy game, then you need to make the 11th Annual Havasu Sand, Water & RV Expo your destination of choice.

So many cities around the country are experiencing quite a cold snap right now. But who wants to put on a jacket to go trick-or-treating? Well, in Lake Havasu, you don't have to cover up your costume when you participate in the Main Street Halloween Fright Night.

Daytime highs reach into the low '80s this time of year. So, you will be feeling nice and warm when you visit Main Street on Halloween night. Beginning at 4 pm, bring the kids to any of the Downtown Havasu businesses located along McCulloch Blvd. Organizers set up fun activities for your little ones to enjoy in between trick-or-treating. Plus, vendors sell food and drinks to help you keep your strength up when hauling all that candy around!

Halloween Lake Havasu City 2022

If you feel like you're not quite ready to go home after Fright Night, head over to the London Bridge. More specifically, head to the stage located under the bridge. Starting at 6:30 pm, the LHC Ghostbusters host their Thriller Dance Contest. Participants get to learn THE dance routine that Michael Jackson showed off in his classic "Thriller" video. First, the Ghostbusters start off slow so you can practice each move. Then, they play it at normal speed for you to dance along. Don't worry. Even if you have two left feet, the Ghostbusters make it easy to follow along by calling out each of the dance steps over top of the music. You got this!

All ages are welcome to join the Thriller Dance Contest for free. Costumes are not required but are greatly encouraged. And they will even be passing out candy to the little ones.

Classic Outboard Championships 2022

Classic Outboard Championships Return to Lake Havasu for 2022

Lake Havasu Classic Outboard Championships

While the rest of the country deals with decreasing temperatures and inclement weather, Havasu folks enjoy sunny skies and temperatures in the upper-80s/low 90s. Higher temps for longer periods of time mean that our lake water feels like a lukewarm bath. That allows water activities like the Lake Havasu Classic Outboard Championships to take place so late in the year.
