Most people have heard that the old London Bridge is now located in Lake Havasu City, AZ. It turns out to be quite a story... Robert McCulloch of chain saw fame. Interestingly enough he made money on the deal. Paid about $7 million to purchase, transport, and reassemble. Made more than that by selling off the interior granite.

It was upper 90s there so it was a nice relief to go on the boat ride.
