Lake Havasu City’s history is interesting and unique. The town was essentially built and established by Robert McCulloch, an entrepreneur who chose Lake Havasu for a chainsaw production facility. The town’s crown jewel landmark is the London Bridge, which was purchased by McCulloch in 1968. The bridge itself was originally built in 1831 over the Thames River in London. Purchased in auction for $2.5 million, the bridge was intended to be a tourist attraction for the newly established town. The London Bridge was disassembled and delivered on a cargo ship crossing through the Panama Canal to Long Beach, California where it was then driven 306 miles to Lake Havasu City. The bridge was re-assembled and opened in 1971. The bridge is Arizona’s second largest tourist attraction aside from the Grand Canyon, which is about 225 miles to the northeast. After the bridge was built and opened, so much interest and land was purchased in the town, the bridge paid for itself.

Many special events and festivals in Lake Havasu are held on or around the London Bridge every year.
