Get in[edit]

By air[edit]

Lake Havasu City is very far from any major airport. Your best bet would probably be Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (IATA: LAS) [2].

By car[edit]

Lake Havasu City is on Arizona State Route 95, which is accessed via Exit 9 off Interstate 40, about 10 miles east of the California border and 42 miles west of Kingman.

By train[edit]

Needles, California, on Interstate 40 about 20 miles west of Exit 9, is the closest city with an Amtrak station. It is served by the Southwest Chief [3] Chicago - Los Angeles route.

Get around[edit]

Arizona State Route 95 is the city's main (and only) artery.
