    If you're in Vegas, I highly recommend checking out the dam. Lots of great history and worth seeing in person after seeing it in movies all the time. About a 25-30 minute ride from Vegas.
  • Michael F.
    Massive and beautiful. If you're near Vegas, come by and learn about the Colorado river and its history. You'll also recognize two time zones.
  • Matthew S.
    The damn is great, but the tour really wasn't that good. It showed only three rooms, one of which was the generators. You can certainly skip the tour.
  • Jonathan B.
    Definitely worth a visit if you're staying in Vegas.

    Make sure to stop by Memorial Bridge on the way out — views of the dam there are incredible!

    Two engineering marvels in one spot. You can't help but awe at the magnitude of these seemingly impossible undertakings. I definitely recommend taking in this view if you can.

    It's a very cool place to visit! You can jump between Arizona and Nevada, the state line is in the middle of the Dam! Park inside the parking facility and keep your car out of the sun.

    You can't reserve the longer $30 tour so get there early to avoid a long wait. Also helps with parking and the heat.

    The dam was built during the Great Depression and provided flood control, crop irrigation, and hydroelectric power for the southwestern states, and many jobs. To learn more watch this C-SPAN video. Read more

    Park the car at Lake Mead and walk to the dam. It's about eight miles round trip but the old railroad tunnels and views are worth the hike

    The bridge that they completed within the last few years saves you a ton of time if you're coming in from Arizona and don't want to see all the sites. 50+ mph the whole way.

    Sehr beeindruckend. Und bedrückend, da man an den Felsen genau sieht, wie wenig Wasser aufgestaut werden kann. Tipp: am Abend wegen des Lichts hin, außerdem ist es nicht so voll und heiss.

    Wer den Blick vom Dam genießen und Fotos machen will, kann sich den Eintritt und die Tour sparen. Einfach vorbeigehen und direkt auf dem Hoover Dam landen. Viel Wasser mitnehmen, es wird sehr heiß!
