Located on the Colorado River and formed by the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead is the largest reservoir in America and a favorite destination among visitors to Las Vegas looking to get off the strip and into the sunshine. 

Travelers who book the Hoover Dam Tour with Lake Mead Cruise can get an up-close look at the inside of this much-storied dam and walk through a 250-foot-long tunnel for unmatched views of the power plant that keeps Las Vegas’ casinos going. Visitors will also go deep into the Black Canyon, 500 feet below ground, enjoy lunch on the lake and round out the day with a stop at the famous Ethel M Chocolate Factory. 

Visitors looking to explore Lake Mead with a touch more class can take a Mississippi River-style paddle-wheel steamboat sunset tour of the water while enjoying a luxury three-course dinner, sparkling wine and plenty of conversation. In addition to spectacular views of the Hoover Dam and its bypass bridge, all guests have the chance to snap their photos atop the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign before heading back to their hotels.
