Guide to Bullhead City
Bullhead City is located to the south of Lake Mohave, alongside the Colorado River. It’s part of Arizona’s Mohave County.
Being very close to the Mojave Desert, Bullhead City is dry and hot throughout the year. Summers are positively blazing, with temperatures ranging between 37 to 42°C (98°F to 107°F). Heatwaves are fairly common, especially in July. Winters, however, are quite pleasant. If you visit between November and February, you might even catch some rain.
Bullhead City got its name from Bull’s Head Rock, a rock formation in Lake Mohave. It was initially built to house the workers who built the Davis Dam. The land on which the city stands was once inhabited by the aboriginal Mojave people, most of whom now live on the Fort Mojave Reservation.
Things to do in Bullhead City
Kayak on the Colorado River
To best appreciate the county’s natural beauty, plan a kayaking trip on the Colorado River. You’ll need to get a permit in advance, though. While you’re still in the mood for some water activities, head over to Lake Mohave, which has a whopping 198 beautiful coves to admire.
Learn about Mojave history
The original occupants of the county, the Mojave nation, left behind hundreds of artifacts that tell their story. The Colorado River Museum and Historical City also displays photographs, maps, and gemstones from different time periods. Make sure to check out the museum’s fossil exhibit.
Explore Grapevine Canyon
Located near Spirit Mountain, which the Mojave people considered the center of creation, Grapevine Canyon is a beautiful crevasse in the landscape. It’s a part of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, and for some reason, is also known as Christmas Tree Pass. Inside its depths, you can find over 700 petroglyphs (rock paintings), many of which are over a thousand years old.
