BEAUTIFUL LAKE HAVASU CITY, ARIZONA
About Lake Havasu City:
Although most recognize Lake Havasu City as the home of the London Bridge, Lake Havasu City is also a thriving community. Lake Havasu City boasts over 55,000 residents. In Winter this number increases as "snow birds" flock to the city to enjoy the warm climate and escape the cold weather in their home towns. They enjoy boating, off-road activities, hiking, fishing, golf, camping, car races, kayaking, swimming, shopping and weekend events that cater to the Winter visitors.
During the Spring and Summer months, Lake Havasu is a haven for boaters who come to enjoy approximately 75 miles of shoreline, beautiful scenery, and camping beaches. As well as boat regattas, festivals and competitive lake racing events.
Aside from the lake itself, Lake Havasu City boasts many amenities including shopping, restaurants, medical/hospital services, recreation and fun!! Lake Havasu City isn't too far from "big city life" either.

A Brief History:
In 1963, when Robert McCulloch bought a 26 square mile parcel in the desert of Arizona for a less than $75.00 per acre, it was the beginning of what would be known as Lake Havasu City, Arizona. Mr. McCulloch's idea was to woo weary snowbound folks from the East and Midwest into purchasing lots in the desert. Prospective buyers were flown in on one of McCulloch's fleet of aircraft and stayed in the Lake Havasu Hotel which was built specifically for the prospective buyers.
In 1968, McCulloch bought the London Bridge from England. It took 3 years to prepare and in October 1971 the bridge was ready to span the Channel that was specifically dredged to accommodate it. Each year thousands come to see the Bridge and visit the quaint English Village shopping center at it's base. Perhaps you would enjoy visiting too!
