Check out LandCentral’s Top 6 Things To Do in Mohave County:
#1. The Grand Canyon, Baby!
That’s right, Grand Canyon West sits right in the heart of Mohave County, north of Kingman. Part of the Hualapai Tribe’s territory, the Grand Canyon West Rim is awe-inspiring with experiences you won’t find anywhere else.

#2. Check Out Lake Havasu (Arizona’s Playground)
Literally known as Arizona’s Playground, Lake Havasu has so many things to do and see, we simply cannot list them all here. But we’ll at least try to cover our favorites: swimming, fishing, rock climbing, off-roading, archery, hiking, boating, stargazing, shopping, and much, much more. This Mohave County gem even has breweries and restaurants galore, meaning you could spend your vacation days and nights never wanting for anything.
#3. Tour with The People of the Blue Green Water
For more than 1,000 years, Mohave County has been home to the Havasupai Tribe, otherwise known as The People of the Blue Green Water. This name was given to these people based on the large tributary that flows from the Colorado River by way of a stunning blue green waterfall. The tribe believes this water flows not only through the land, but through its tribe members as well. A remote tribe, they love sharing their ways with tourists. Camp on their reservation or experience a pack mule hike through their sacred lands. Everything requires a reservation, so make sure you check out their site before you go. This encounter truly is a rare treat and one of our favorite things to do in Mohave County.

Sitting on 175 acres is a nonprofit sanctuary home to 130 exotic animals.
