Lake Hazasu is famous for two things - The original London Bridge (the newer one I walk over every day for work) and Spring Break. We were there for the first reason. It's a weird setting, this grand old bridge, with mountains in the background and fantastic weather even at 7am. Think some business man bought it in the 60's, shipped it brick by brick to Arizona, and rebuilt it as a tourist destination. Personally I would have just bought a theme park, but to be fair to the guy, I did drive for 6 hours to go and look at it, so I suppose it works.
Lake Havasu was just a one night stopover, before carrying onto California and Nevada, en-route to Las Vegas.
