The London Bridge in Arizona? Yup. The bridge that used to span the River Thames in England is here! In 1967, London's City Council sought potential buyers for the London Bridge and Lake Havasu City founder and entrepreneur Robert P. McCulloch bid $2,460,000 on April 18, 1968 and won! The structure was then dismantled, shipped overseas through the Panama Canal and California, then trucked to Arizona where reconstruction began. Lake Havasu City rededicated the London Bridge on October 10, 1971 where it has consistently remained a favorite Arizona attraction, drawing visitors worldwide. A 90-minute walking tour of the bridge is conducted by the Lake Havasu City Visitor Center ($10 for adults and children under 12 are free).
