ARIZONA’S LAKE HAVASU IS THE SITE OF THE OLD LONDON BRIDGE.
For something completely different, combine the glitzy showbiz world of Las Vegas’s famous Strip with a trip about 30 miles south-east to Lake Mead, set on the Nevada/Arizona border. Take a fascinating tour of the massive Hoover Dam and enjoy the lake area’s water and land sports. Or, if you are into houseboating, the place to head for is Lake Powell, surrounded by spectacular red rock scenery on the Arizona/Utah border. Then, of course, there is man-made Lake Havasu, set in desert terrain on the Arizona/ California border and, since 1971, the home of the relocated old London Bridge. Tour around the lakeside miniature lighthouses, enjoy all the water sports and then wine, dine and shop your way around the adjacent namesake city.
