  Hoover Dam
by meteorologist1

Hoover Dam is the main attraction in Boulder City. It is actually located just outside the town on U.S. Highway 93. The dam is an impressive and breathtaking site. Its structure and location in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River makes it unique. By looking at its structure, you can imagine the labor and the pain and suffering that went into the construction of Hoover Dam.

Parking is $5. The Discovery Tour of Hoover Dam, which includes a slideshow presentation about its construction, viewing of the generators, good view of the dam from the top, presentation of how the dam works in relation to other dams in the area, and some other stuff, costs $10.00 for each adult.

Directions: From Las Vegas, take I-515 east/south which later becomes U.S. Highway 93 South. Pass through Boulder City, continue on U.S. 93 South until you reach Hoover Dam.
