Lake Havasu Musem of History
Lake Havasu City was formed only in 1964; but it still has the "Lake Havasu Museum of History". The museum is actually pretty well done and has a number of interesting displays about the history of the area and of course London Bridge. Hours are 1 to 4 PM Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is $4 and children 12 and under and Historical Society Members get in free. This museum is worth checking out when you are in the area. Photo 1 is the exterior of the museum; Photo 2 is the display about Native American Tribes from the area; Photo 3 is a display about really ancient area residents; Photo 4 shows the importance of the Colorado River; and Photo 5 shows the importance of the area in World War II.
Lake Havasu City, Arizona
"Winter resort and retirement center"
Lake Havasu City, Arizona, is located on a 40 mile long reservoir on the Colorado River that forms the boundary between California and Arizona. In recent years, the town has grown from a small village to a bustling town. It is a mecca for retired people, many of whom live there all year round, in spite of the fierce summer heat. At the same time, it is a popular family destination - particularly on weekends. The area has also been a favorite of college students on spring break, and developed a reputation as a riotous party spot. Local officials have taken steps, however, to see that Lake Havasu remains a place where families can relax in the sun.
My only visit was brief, the purpose being to take my daughter to visit her future in-laws at their family vacation spot. So, I did not have an opportunity to try any restaurants, the local lodging, or to take many photos.
