The area's focal point is the London Bridge, which was transported from London and reconstructed in Lake Havasu. Area locals call the bridge the world's largest antique. More than 1 million visitors flock to the area every year to view the structure that once spanned London's Thames River. Lake Havasu State Park covers nearly 11,000 acres and 23 miles of shoreline.
