Pictures of Lake Havasu City

Is It London or Lake Havasu City?

Strange as it seems, Lake Havasu is home to the historic London Bridge. It stood for over 140 years as a major crossing of the River Thames in London, England. When nature began sinking the bridge it was purchased in 1968 by Robert P. McCulloch and became the focal landmark of Lake Havasu City Arizona. Each piece was numbered, disassembled and shipped to Arizona where it now crosses the Colorado River to a small island in Lake Havasu. Medieval England style shops were developed around the bridge to continue the nostalgic flavor of the historic landmark.
