Lake Havasu

 

01-19-2012

I looked online and saw that Lake Havasu was having a balloon festival. I decided to leave the RV , and stay in a hotel for two nights. So, I took a side trip and spent the night at Lake Havasu. I went there to see the annual Lake Havasu Balloon Festival. Wow I saw so many balloons and surprisingly it was pretty damn cold in the mornings here. I even took a tethered ride in a hot air balloon for $15. I could see the whole city from up there it was a chance of a life time to go up in one of those balloons and it was tied down so it was safe, unless the bottom fell out. I really enjoyed the experience and was so glad that I took the ride .....

A tourist attraction in Lake Havasu City is the London Bridge, which crosses a 930 ft (280 m) long man-made canal that leads from Lake Havasu (on the Colorado River) to Thompson Bay. It was bought for US $2.5 million from the City of London 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.

The London Bridge is the second most visited tourist attraction in Arizona, behind only the Grand Canyon.
