Lake Havasu City’s success as a tourist destination incremented with McCulloch’s purchasing of the London Bridge from England for $2,460,000. Following its transfer and reconstruction on the Lake Havasu peninsula, the London Bridge opened officially in 1971.
Beyond its feats of man-made architecture, Lake Havasu possesses immense, natural architecture. Soft beaches and soothing tides are featured all year-round, and the brilliant blue waters of the lake are a dream for fishing and swimming. Volcanic rock, geodes, jaspers, obsidian, turquoise, and agate can be unearthed along Lake Havasu City’s desert as well.
To make for an interesting fact, Lake Havasu is home to more lighthouses than any other city in the United States.
