Many grown-ups fondly remember their beer-infused visits to&nbsp;Lake Havasu City, but the Arizona community is more than a spring-break destination for college kids. The lake attracts couples and families too, and it&rsquo;s particularly pleasing in fall after the thermometer drops from summer highs.Because this place is all about the water, why not consider sleeping on it? In fall and winter,&nbsp;Lake Havasu Houseboats&nbsp;rents a 60-foot vessel for $2,395 for two nights (the minimum stay). With two bedrooms plus berths, the boat can comfortably sleep 10. It offers all the comforts of home, including a full kitchen, and a sun deck with a slide that plops you into the lake. For landlubbers, the&nbsp;visitor center&nbsp;can provide other lodging choices.The comfort food at&nbsp;Brew Shack&nbsp;is both tempting and inexpensive, with nearly 30 varieties of grilled cheese sandwiches all priced at $6 or $7. The Bavarian includes bratwurst, Swiss cheese and sauerkraut, and the Bombay Bacon is stuffed with bacon, cream cheese, mango chutney and dates. Also indulge in a steaming hot bowl of the homemade tomato soup; it&rsquo;s delicious. For a fancier meal,&nbsp;Shugrue&rsquo;s&nbsp;overlooks the transplanted London Bridge.The River Thames has had a bridge since the year 43, but the one standing in Lake Havasu City opened in 1831. London auctioned off the 1,000-foot bridge in the 1960s when the span was slowly sinking. Jan Kassies, who leads 90-minute walking tours, explained that the bridge reopened in the Mojave Desert 45 years ago after its 10,000 numbered blocks of granite were shipped from England and reassembled. Tours ($10 for adults, children 12 and younger are free) leave the visitor center at 11 a.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from October through April.Distance one way from downtown Los Angeles:&nbsp;299 milesThis story&nbsp;was originally published on Oct.&nbsp;20, 2016.
