    Bring a camera and take all the dam pictures you want! Wow! Bigger and more impressive in person.
  • Jake H.
    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.
