“A real London Bridge...in Arizona”
London Bridge was falling down, so it got relocated to Lake Havasu City, Ariz. No, really. It is the very London Bridge built in 1831 that once sat astride the Thames across the pond. But by the mid-20th century, it could no longer handle the load of London's traffic and got auctioned off to an Arizona oil baron — he spent $2,460,000 on the bridge and then an extra $7 million to have it dismantled and reconstructed in Lake Havasu City in 1971. Guinness World Records calls it the world's largest antique. So you can drive over or stroll along a 950-ft.-long piece of history, complete with a Tudor backdrop. It's like being in two places at once.
This area is beautiful! Just as you cross the bridge headed to the island turn left and follow the parking lot back and there is an awesome sandy beach and park. You can't rent paddle boards and jet skis or just walk the concrete trail. Highly recommend paddling this channel under the bridge there are little restaurants and and fun sight seeing
The only real historic landmark in Havasu, it's definitely worth a look and a walk around if you're in the area. Feed the fish, walk through the visitors center, get some ice cream. It's an hour of interesting, especially if you like stories of men with more money than sense.
Amazing! Follow the sign to the visitor’s center. It’s located in a place called London Town. You can walk around, take pictures, eat, drink and rent water activity gear (boys, wave runners, paddle boats, even the flying water thing). Plus you can read all the plaques with the history of the bridge.
Great stop! We stayed here on the way back from the Grand Canyon. It’s a neat town and great place to relax.
