Our community is an outstanding location to live, work and play – that’s why 54,000 of us call Lake Havasu City home. Many came for the lake, for the desert, for employment and growth opportunities or to retire. Whatever the reason, Lake Havasu City is our place in the sun. Lake Havasu City is a great place for business – commercial property abounds and prices are reasonable. With a business climate based mainly in the service industry, retail, restaurants, hotels and motels, campgrounds stay busy serving summer visitors from Southern California, Nevada and the Phoenix area.
