This is a nice area, but the heat is sweltering in the summer! Usually ten degrees+ hotter than Las Vegas. It's basically the hottest (inhabited) place in the United States. Of course, Death Valley is more extreme, but very few people live there.

Bullhead City is a nice central location in the tri-state area. 1 hour from Las Vegas, 1.5 hours from Lake Havasu, 2.5 hours to Williams (Grand Canyon train), 2 hours from lake mead, 4 hours to Phoenix, 5 hours to LA, 4 hours to Mexico, etc.

The mountain ranges and ridges around Bullhead are beautiful!

It is definitely a place to visit or live ONLY during the winter.

During the winter season it is like a mild spring day to a balmy summer day. DREAMY!

You'll like Imperial Valley during the winter, although I wear my jacket or sweater all day because the temperature in the 70's cold for me. There are more things to do in the winter, like going to the desert with the bikes and quads. Believe it or not, you get use to the hot temperatures in the summer.
