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.
