EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

Lake Havasu City, AZ

Pros: Good: The community college is pretty affordable, and it offers a variety of classes people can take for recreation...

Cons: Bad: The city bus has insufficient routes, there is no Greyhound station (for roundtrips outside of Havasu, people have to pay $100 extra to use a service that connects to another city), airport doesn't transport folks to California, lack of high tech jobs, lack of diversity of things to buy in stores (many items have to be ordered online), only a few Internet Service Providers (costs are high for DSL, and there are insufficient choices for consumers), rent is too expensive for people working at minimum wage jobs...
