The London Bridge is located in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

Lake Havasu City was established in 1963 by Robert P. McCulloch (of McCulloch Chainsaws) as a planned community. It incorporated in 1978. The present city grew around an old mining town established in the early 20th century.

A popular tourist attraction in Lake Havasu City is the London Bridge, which crosses an 8ft deep man-made canal that leads from Lake Havasu (on the Colorado River) to Thompson Bay. It was bought for for $2.5 million from the City of London when the bridge was replaced in 1968. The bridge was disassembled, and the marked stones were shipped to Lake Havasu City and reassembled for another $7 million. It opened in October 1971. It has been claimed that it was bought in the mistaken belief that it was the more grandiose Tower Bridge (which is often wrongly called London Bridge by tourists), but McCulloch ardently denied that.

The city is serviced by several intersecting loop roads, which connect with Highway 95. This somewhat unorthodox road layout has been a source of confusion for many newcomers. Many of the houses in the city are vacation homes.

The city is a destination of choice for university students during Spring Break. Its reputation in the region rivals Panama City, Florida in the east. Much of the spring break activity centers on the London Bridge Resort Village, a British-themed tourist district next to the bridge. The resort built a large patio extending out to the channel with a swimming pool and a stage equipped with disco lighting to accommodate parties.

Lake Havasu City is regularly host to other major events such as boating conventions and the Western Winter Blast. Property values have soared in recent years as has the city's population. - Wikipedia Article Lake Havasu City, Arizona
