Snowbirds love vacationing in Lake Havasu City Arizona. Why? Great weather and so many things to do. Lake Havasu boasts the best of both worlds... the progress and innovation of a vibrant community and the friendly, caring atmosphere of a small town.
Lake Havasu City is located in Mohave County, Arizona, United States, the Cities location is prime for recreational activities as well as day tripping. Palm Springs is just 3 hours away as is the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas is a mere 2.5 hours from Lake Havasu and Scottsdale and Sedona are three hour trips. All make for great one or two day get a ways.
No one can argue that Lake Havasu gets pristine weather while the rest of the Mid West gets blasted with snow and cold; meanwhile back in Lake Havasu the snowbirds enjoy 60-70F weather and sun filled days.
Lake Havasu has many local attractions as well as recreation activities – our 45 mile long lake is active with Jet Skis, Paddle Boards, Fishing Boats as well as Kayaking or just soaking up the sun on one of our beaches.
If the water does not peak your interest try hiking, mountain biking or just enjoy talking leisurely walks. So much to do and so many people to meet you will be thrilled to vacation in Lake Havasu.
The snowbird migration happens every year. When the icy winds start howling in northern states and Canada, the snowbirds make their migration. The first wave of people are the early snowbirds. They get here by the end of November. Others wait until the holidays are over back home before they venture to Lake Havasu.
Snowbirds, sometimes called doves of the desert, but more frequently winter residents, fleeing the cold, damp northern tier states, come here for the winter, bask in Lake Havasu sun, to soak up our traditions and culture.
Our Snow Birds all gather and celebrate the return of friends from previous years. They return year after year, just like the Swallows go to San Juan Capistrano, the Monarchs go to Mexico, and the Buzzards return to Hinckley. And the nice part is that many snowbirds soon become full-time residents of Arizona.
