Bullhead City is also home to the Arizona Veterans Memorial and Eternal Flame, a riverfront park set aside to remember those Arizonans who lost their lives serving our country in the last 100 years. The Arizona Veterans Memorial stands nine feet high, 40 feet wide and displays the flags of Arizona, the U.S. and each branch of the armed services along with 11 bronze plaques carrying the names of more than 3,000 service men and women from the state of Arizona who were killed in wars and armed conflicts in the last 100 years. On each side of the curved memorial wall are giant bronze eagles surrounded by 50 stars, each representing one of the 50 United States. The riverfront memorial park is open year-round and admission is free.

The Colorado River Valley is known across the Southwest as a year-round vacation paradise, offering a choice between the cold, fast-flowing Colorado River and the warm, smooth waters of Lake Mohave. Both are perfect for water sports such as boating, water skiing, personal watercraft and fishing throughout the year. Fishing has always been one of the region’s claims to fame. The area held the world’s record for the largest freshwater striped bass ever caught for more than 20 years. That giant, landed in the early 1980s, was caught just south of Davis Dam and weighed in at more than 58 pounds.
