Route 66: Arcadia, CA, to Flagstaff, AZ (15-of-20)

The birds are too hot to move. When I was driving to Flagstaff, AZ, today, I saw the exit for Lake Havasu and London Bridge. I remembered that when the Brits were going to replace the bridge, a wealthy benefactor brought the bridge to the US and reassembled it at Lake Havasu. With a bachelor’s and master’s degree in English, how could I pass this up?

It’s not easy to find London Bridge in Lake Havasu City, AZ. If you overshoot the turn and try again from the south, you’ll see a sign that says to turn right, when the bridge is really left. I spent a lot of time trying to find the bridge, but I’m glad I did. There are some cute gift shops, a theatre, lake activities, etc. in the area.
