Stunning Lake Havasu is a reservoir located on the Colorado River at the California / Arizona border. The sunny area prides itself on being a year round vacation destination. One of the unique features of Lake Havasu is a treasure from not-so-sunny London. In 1968, the city of Lake Havasu purchased the London Bridge from the city of London, England. The bridge was disassembled, brought over by barge, and reassembled to become a very popular tourist destination.Lake Havasu homes

Perfect for outdoor activities year-round, visitors have the option to swim, hike, bike, rock climb, fish, sail, and even water ski!
