Nestled along the Colorado River near the spot where Arizona, California and Nevada meet, Bullhead City is a budding community. The scenic beauty, deep blue skies and majestic mountains make this community a visual paradise.

Originally known as Hardyville, the settlement began when William Harrison Hardy began operating a ferry, trading post and inn on the Colorado River in 1864. Construction of Davis Dam, located to the North, began in 1942. Construction was halted because necessary materials were consumed by World War II efforts, however it was resumed in 1946 and the Dam was completed in 1950.

A popular recreation area, visitors may choose between the cold, fast-running waters of the Colorado River or the smooth, warm waters of Lake Mohave for fishing and water recreation. Other popular activities include off-roading, hiking and golfing. The community hosts annual events such as rodeos, a Bluegrass Festival, powerboat races, chili cook-offs, and the Harley River Run. Just across the Colorado River is beautiful Laughlin, Nevada home to nine casino’s each bringing several entertainers to the area throughout the year. Links to both areas are listed below to assist with upcoming community events and resourses.
