Founded in 1964 as a planned community, Lake Havasu City is nestled amid craggy desert peaks on the Colorado River in western Arizona. Perhaps best known as the American home of the famous London Bridge―moved to town, piece by piece, in 1971 and painstakingly reconstructed―Lake Havasu City was first home to natives of the Mohave and Chemehuevi tribes. Steamboats plying the waters of the Colorado, mining interests in the region, and the construction of Parker Dam, which resulted in the 45-mile-long Lake Havasu, all played important roles in the development of this unique community. Today, the city’s more than 50,000 residents and 2.5 million annual visitors enjoy myriad recreational opportunities in this desert oasis,as well as a historical legacy unlike any other.
