About Lake Havasu City
Lake Havasu City, home of the historic London Bridge, is situated on the eastern shore of Lake Havasu on the Colorado River border of California and Arizona. The City was established in 1963 by Robert P. McCulloch as a self-sufficient, planned community.
McCulloch purchased the London Bridge for $2,460,000. Moving the bridge to Lake Havasu City and reconstructing it in the middle of a desert cost an additional $7 million. The bridge was dismantled and shipped by boat from England to the United States and rebuilt on a peninsula on Lake Havasu. A channel was excavated under the bridge and an English Village replication was built next to it. The opening of the London Bridge in October 1971 brought a unique attraction to Lake Havasu City, which was incorporated in 1978.
Lake Havasu City is located in Mohave County, Arizona, and encompasses 42 square miles with 428 miles of streets. Situated off of Arizona Highway 95, an 18-mile drive north leads to Interstate 40, and a 65-mile drive south leads to Interstate 10.
