The Colorado River has a reputation this time of year as party central. For college kids, it's a popular spring break spot, with cheap hotels, chain restaurants and margaritas the size of babies' heads. And for Southern Californians of any age, it's a giant weekend water park, complete with Mardi Gras beads. But a trip to "the river," as most of us simply call it, is more than shotgunning Tecate cans while hanging shirtless from the bow of a rented motorboat.

Ever since 1964, when developer Robert McCulloch purchased land for a planned community on the east shore of Lake Havasu, this town has become more and more a party-hearty place during much of the year. Spring-breakers and summer revelers swarm the lake, and boats jam the waters as a relentless sun spikes temperatures as high as 120. In fall and winter, however, the place is different. Power boaters are few, the sky is cornflower blue and the mercury rises only half as high.
