One of the most astounding things about this area is its magnificent desert landscape. Lake Havasu City is nestled between tall, red mountains and a crisp, blue lake and features beauty at every turn. While the natural beauty is difficult to top, there are other things that contribute to the area's magnificence. A major contrast to the rolling sand dunes is the presence of an ancient bridge, a piece of history from another land. Spanning the blue-green water is the London Bridge, a gray edifice that literally came from around the world. While this structure may not be indigenous to the area, it definitely adds to the scenery and interest of this desert town.
