PHOENIX — If you’re looking for a good time near the water but don’t feel like heading to California or Mexico, a northern Arizona lake may be just the ticket.
According to Thrillist, Arizona’s Lake Havasu is one of the best 10 party lakes in the United States.
Twice-featured on MTV’s Spring break coverage and dubbed one of the trashiest places to spend the March holiday, Havasu is Sin City, South Padre, and Daytona Beach all rolled into one insane on-the-water smorgasbord.
Thrillist also cited the Bridgewater Channel as a reason to hit the lake. The half-mile stretch of water is regularly inhabited by plenty of booze, people and even a few boat-side stripper poles.
Other spots on the list included Lake Minnetonka, Minn., Lake Martin, Ala., and Lake Tahoe on the Nevada-California border.
