“If you wish to advance into the infinite, explore the finite in all directions.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Western Arizona encompasses the area stretching along the Colorado River downstream from Hoover Dam all the way to the Mexican border. Arizona’s West Coast has numerous beaches, coves and lakes that provide access to boating, water skiing, fishing, and wildlife viewing. This area is a haven for birdwatchers, since it is home to several wildlife refuges where one can see migrating Canada geese and a wide variety of other birds including bald eagles, egrets, and great blue herons. Historic attractions include archaeological sites dating back to early prehistoric times, the legendary Yuma Territorial Prison, as well as the famous London Bridge which was relocated to Lake Havasu.
