A popular tourist attraction is the London Bridge, which crosses a 930 ft long man-made canal. It was bought by Robert Paxton McCulloch an American entrepreneur most notable for McCulloch Chainsaws for US $2.5 million from the City of London, England, when the bridge was replaced in 1968. The bridge was disassembled, and the marked stones were shipped to Lake Havasu City and reassembled for another US $7 million. It opened in October 1971.

Lake Havasu is home to more lighthouses than any other city in America. These 1/3 scale replicas are actual functioning navigational aids, built to the specifications of famous East and West Coast lighthouses. More than 15 currently dot the shores of the lake. This is a replica of the state of Maine's Mount Desert Lighthouse.

HoosierAtHeART I really love #3 & #4, especially #3 with the blue water, reddish rock and then the sunlight greens. It really pulls the viewer in.

djnana I love a post with narrative, so I can appreciate what I'm seeing. And these are wonderful photos, Joe! I especially like the second and fourth ones. I've heard of the London Bridge relocation, but I've never seen it until today! Thanks!!
