I visited the London Bridge last week and it was nice to see and get to know the history surrounding how the bridge got to the middle of the desert. There is several restaurants and shops nearby and I would recommend the Mexican restaurant. As for the bridge, it is what it is. We drove from Las Vegas for a 3 hour drive and after viewing the bridge for about an hour I was ready to head back. Of course it's great history but after a little bit it gets boring as it is a bridge. There is plenty of parking and information to keep your interest. It's a great photo opportunity and I guess it would make a great story to tell friends you went to where the original London bridge is located. Would I recommend going there? If you have a free day or you are on your way to a place and are going to pass by, sure. I wouldn't recommend flying from New York City or going out of your way to see it. Unless this is your hobby.

I traveled to Lake Havasu City to visit the bridge and the gorgeous lake with its colorful rock walls. I read all I could on-line about the bridge since I found out they don't have tours on Sunday. But most important, take a boat cruise so you can see how the bridge changed the waterway formation and hopefully learn more about the bridge, the Colorado River, Lake Havasu, and its earlier inhabitants.

Great stop on your way south. The bridge is interesting and some of the grounds are nice. Some fun little shops and delicious ice cream. A great photo opportunity.

Plenty of parking, then you walk over the bridge. We had an ice/slush puppy as it was 115 degs. Not much open as it was late in the season and a Wednesday.

This is the namesake of much in the area. It was brought over piece by piece and now connects Lake Havasu "island" from the rest of Lake Havasu City. It is a beautiful structure and worth seeing. There use to be more commerce around the bridge. It was in severe disrepair a few years ago, but is making a comeback, with several new vendors and stores. This could be a really special place if the city can get its act together and make the area something people want to come to. They are trying, but not quite there yet. I think the many festivals that now come to this area will help move it in the right direction.
