Parker vacation rentals

Parker is a surprising Arizona oasis

While Arizona is typically known for its dry, desert climate, Parker vacation rentals offer the opportunity for a wet vacation. The city sits on the banks of the Colorado River and provides several water sports for visitors to partake in. You’ll always be able to find things to do in Parker, whether it’s lounging under an umbrella on your boat, cooling off in the sparkling waters of the river, or taking a trip to the Parker Dam. When you tire of being in the sun, make a stop Downtown to experience shopping and dining opportunities.

Outdoor fun for everyone in Parker

With 16 miles of riverfront, the opportunities for family things to do in Parker are nearly endless. One of the most popular activities is boating. Let your watercraft float down the river for a lazy day, cast out your fishing lines, or attach a parasail and float into the sky for a panoramic aerial view. More adventurous vacationers might enjoy cruising on water skis or trying their hand at wakeboarding. Less rigorous activities include golfing at the Emerald Canyon Golf Course and gambling at the BlueWater Resort and Casino.

Explore the world’s deepest dam in Parker

Parker is best known for the Parker Dam, a 320-foot high structure that creates a reservoir of water called Lake Havasu. From the dam, you’ll be able to gaze upon incredible rocky cliffs and cerulean blue waters in the distance. After visiting the dam, you’ll also want to check out the Colorado River Indian Tribes Museum and Library, which provides educational exhibits on the history and culture of the 4 different Indian tribes that once lived around the Colorado River. Other attractions near Parker include the Swansea Ghost Town and Poston Memorial.

Four enjoyable seasons in Parker

Parker is extremely lucky to have warm weather all year, which means that you truly can book Parker vacation rentals any time without fear. Generally, temperatures in late winter and early spring are the most comfortable for outdoor activities. Parker weather in February, March, and April typically sees an average temperature in the high 70s. However, booking a stay in late fall is also not a bad idea, as average high temperature in November and December also still reach into the 70s. Either way, you’ll have no problem getting your fill of the sun and cooling off in the tranquil waters of the river.
