Life in Mohave County - A Year-Round Recreational Wonderland Full of Culture

A growing retail base, golf and water recreation, a weekend cabin in the Hualapai mountains, gaming, the
premier amenities and shopping of Las Vegas, and warm sunny winters, await you in Mohave County

Why not live where over 4 million people vacation each year? We offer mountains, desert, rivers, lakes, with Indian heritage and historical culture of our pioneer mining days gone by. Here there are brand new, modern facilities, shopping, golf clubs, marinas, and day spas - with casinos open 24 hours, so regardless of your work schedule, you can enjoy them. Here there are open roads, crisp air, and a breeze off the water. Imagine your Christmas tree being a palm tree and a holiday present being an ATV or kayak with a bow on it!

  • Did you know that a 30 minute one-way drive to work is equal to losing six 40-hour work weeks? Here you can live 3 minutes from the hospital and save all that time for fun, or your time devoted to anything more important than staring at the bumper ahead of you in traffic!
  • We're what Palm Springs used to be, but with the Colorado River and Lake Mohave!
  • No hurricanes, earthquakes, and tornadoes here!
  • We're a laid back place with unpretentious neighbors who welcome you with a smile.

Location, Location! Southern California is a 4 hour drive on I-40, and we are under 90 minutes to Las Vegas to see Cirque du Soleil, a Jerry Seinfeld performance, a championship boxing match that will be broadcast around the world, and Las Vegas is also "the world's shopping Mecca!" Come join us – we would love to share our wonderful life here in Mohave County!

“This area is simply too beautiful and…it’s sunny all the time. There is no winter, and it’s arid – retirees love it. And we don’t have hurricanes like Florida does. With the crowding of Phoenix and Las Vegas, we’re the only open space left for those who want to move to a desert lifestyle without hassles.” – Tom
“I remember going to Palm Springs as a kid – there were movie stars there who wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax and play golf. It’s crazy there now – now there’s smog. It’s simply not the Palm Springs it was created for. We are the new Palm Springs, and we also have the Colorado River and Lake Mohave.” – Keri
“We have three seasons in Mohave County: Dirt, Street, and Water seasons.” – Jon
“More and more people have an interest in flying, which is a very safe, wonderful hobby – and this is a great area to learn to fly.” – Tookie

With an indoor 2-story mall, large box retailers like Home Depot, Target, Lowes, Sam’s Club, and large-chain grocers, everything a family needs is here. Fine-dining to quaint family restaurants, to fabulous buffets and bistros, are popping up throughout Mohave County. For the ultimate in relaxation, the Salon and Spa at Harrah’s is a treat!

A multi-acre, indoor, two-story indoor outlet mall and 9 movie theaters – few towns our size offer this!

Shopping/Eating/Leisure/Spa (Photo Galleries)

Hint: As incentive for gaming, the casino/resorts in Laughlin offer incredible deals as low as $25 per night for deluxe rooms, extremely inexpensive 5-star buffets and a few fine dining restaurants, spas, moderate shopping, and they house chains from Outback, Starbucks, to Joe’s Crab Shack – which we fully enjoy, too! Not bad amenities for a community of 40,000!

There's nothing like Lakes Mohave and Havasu and the Colorado River. From taking your boat out for the afternoon, renting a pontoon boat for your own sequestered inlet with a mountain view, jet skiing, fishing, to enjoying lunch at Katherine Landing Marina, our lake is another great place to be in Mohave County! And there may be nothing more peaceful than kayaking through the Topock Gorge on water as smooth as glass or into the Black Canyon and its caves – you might and spy a bobcat or deer in the early morning.

It's "wide open" here. We boast the ultimate variety of motor sports and unlimited trails to explore, that you and the family can enjoy year round. With our wide open spaces, you can make any day one of discovery – don't forget to pack a lunch!

Outdoor Recreation (Video & Photo Galleries)

Hints: It's sunny here 350 days a year! Buy a house with a pool and either purchase a boat or jet skis, or make friends with boat owners – "fun on the water" is not just great, but you'll want the refreshment of it in summer! 'Plenty of boat ramps means there is little waiting to launch and start enjoying the day! And if you love the outdoors and/or consider yourself a hiker, backpacker, or motorcycle enthusiast, you'll make many friends here!

Golf (Photo Gallery)

Hint: Las Vegas and Lake Havasu City are an easy drive for a day of golf, and our local country clubs are superb, and rarely require making tee-times well in advance – and no waiting to tee off!

Our modern school facilities and programs, pristine communities along the parkway in the hills, our skate and three ball parks, support fun and season sports programs. Our area offers unlimited adventure for families!

Kid Stuff

Hint: We’re a considerably smaller community and far from urban problems – this is a place where you know neighbors, tighter knit – what a fun, safe place to grow up!
