Lake Havasu borders California to the west, a blue oasis in the Arizona desert. The lake was established in 1938 as a result of the construction of the Parker Dam. Lake Havasu was founded by Robert P. McCullough, the inventor of the McCullough chainsaw, who used the lake to test boat engines. He bought 3,500 acres of land on the east side of the lake. The early inhabitants around the lake lived in tents, and this made them proud to be the pioneers of the 1960s.
The spring break on Lake Havasu is a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of drunkenness to all the tourist attractions. Activities on Lake Havasu encourage students to go hiking, boating and enjoy the tranquility of nature.
The London Bridge, which stretches from Lake Havasu to Thompson Bay, was bought by McCullough in 1968 for $ 2.5 million. The bridge in London was rebuilt with great effort, and each brick was identified and transported to Arizona, which took three years to rebuild. Changes in safety and fitness have changed it, but visitors do not seem to be upset. A small English village takes guests across the sea as guests pass through strange streets. This bridge offers a spectacular night view of the lake, the city and the sky.
