Recently RiverScene Magazine asked readers to send in photos and quotes on why they love Lake Havasu City.
Here are some of the quotes and photos we received:
“Aquatic center for birthday fun, Young Marine recruits getting involved in our community. The lake so we can spend our summer making life-long memories.”
– Amber McKinney
“Beauty, safety and a sense of Community Spirit make Lake Havasu City home!”
“Loving the historical monument, in which my family helped build!
Loving the breath taking colors and views Havasu’s sunsets have to offer!
Loving the different types of plants we’re surrounded by here in Havasu!”
“Patio view from ASU Havasu. Stunning.”
“I love it for what it’s not, it’s not the big city.”
“From the breath of warm air on your skin, the beauty of the lake and mountains that surround it, to the vision of my grandfather, Robert P. McCulloch Sr., the seeds of a community that he planted as the city’s founder, Lake Havasu City, was the best place in America to call home. Then, just as it is now, in 2016, as those seeds and vision, rooted in my grandfather’s master plan, adapted over the decades by both original and later residents, includes “welcome mats,” letting former and current residents, members of the Founding family, such as myself, and frequent visitors, first-time visitors, and travelers just passing through, that “You’ve arrived to Lake Havasu City; welcome home to the friendliest city in America!”
-Sheila McCulloch Press
“I love living in a small town. This town is very community minded. So many events all year long. Some of my favorites are the Balloon Festival, the fireworks in February and the Fourth of July. We love taking people on the lake and taking them under the London Bridge!
– Susie Cook
“I love Lake Havasu City as the people here have been so nice to us and made us feel welcome as we are winter visitors. We have made a lot of new friends. We have been coming here for the last 3 years this is our 4th year for the winter. We love all the events Lake Havasu has to offer us the sunsets are beautiful. I love to take photos and this is the place to go for sure as the wildlife and the different birds are a thrill to me daily. It is hard to pick two pictures of my favorite as I have so many. We Love Lake Havasu.”
