Not mentioned is that this place is a major spring break hotspot. For those two weeks, and during the summer as well, the beach is full of women in tiny bikinis, and men offering them beads to flash their breasts. I've been told that the Girls Gone Wild videos we've all seen commercials for were made here.
A friendly note for anyone wishing to drive there from California: Do not take the US Highway 95 exit soon after Needles. You want the AZ 95 approximately 30 miles later. Taking the US 95 will indeed take you to Lake Havasu, but to the wrong side. Why there are two freeways with identical numberings 30 miles apart is a mystery to me.
