Hwy. 93, Boulder City

The Basics

The dam is a popular day-trip destination from Las Vegas and transportation options range from comedy buses, Hummers, and mountain bikes. On-site, tour the power plant, learn how the dam generates and distributes electricity, and see stunning views of the surrounding riverways, canyons, and valleys. Some tours even combine a Hoover Dam visit with shooting range stops, excursions to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, or a cruise on Lake Mead. Want a bird’s-eye view? Opt for a flightseeing helicopter tour instead.

Hoover Dam Tour from Las Vegas
My husband and I chose the half day tour, and we're extremely pleased with our trip! It ended up being a couple hours longer than we anticipated (I believe it said 4.5 hours, and from the tike we were picked up to drop off was about 5 or 5.5 hours) but we were totally fine with it! We made several stops and had ample opportunities to take pictures and see different views. We loved hearing the history of the Hoover Dam. The bus was clean and heated/cooled. We would definitely recommend!

When to Get There
