London Bridge

By Julian

After visiting the Grand Canyon we traveled to the see the London Bridge?!?!? It only took four hours of driving on a Wednesday.  We drove out of the cold weather into Lake Havasu and discovered that the London Bridge is located in Arizona!

 I was in the RV mostly just playing on my ipad until Caroline (my sister) yelled IN AND OUT. In-N-Out Burger is an American regional chain of fast food restaurants with locations primarily in the American Southwest and Pacific coast. It was founded in Baldwin Park, California in 1948 by Harry Snyder and Esther Snyder and it has fresh fries cut in the restaurant. we LOVE in-and-out-burger and they don’t have it in Wisconsin (we live in Wisconsin) so we had to stop. After I ate my burger underneath the London Bridge…   Wait Whatttttt!!!!    Yes, it’s true the London Bridge is in Lake Havasu Arizona.  

This construction of the London Bridge spanned the River Thames between 1830 and 1967 in the City of London.  It was purchased by Robent P McCulloch  from the city of London and shipped brick by brick to Arizona in 1967 and reconstructed in Lake Havasu City.  The Arizona bridge is a reinforced concrete structure clad in the original masonry of the 1830s bridge, it was opened to traffic in 1973.

After lunch we checked into our RV park which had a heated pool! After the cold weather of the Grand Canyon it was exactly what we all needed.
