Best for Partying: Thousands of college students gather on the Arizona side of Lake Havasu each spring for time-honored rituals like nearly running aground, naked waterskiing, and around-the-clock boat parties. (No, it’s not legal to dive off London Bridge.) There are plenty of places to party onshore too, whatever the season—nightclubs, bars, restaurants, lake-view hotel rooms, and the patio of the swanky Heat Hotel.
