Boulder City is the Gateway to lake mead and the hoover dam, US Route 93 passes by here going to Arizona and although the City itself is small, it has some attractions and is just one of the two areas of the whole of Nevada where gambling is prohibited. Boulder city was voted as one of the 25 cities all around the United States to live hance there is a number of retirees in the city from all around the United States. The city was originally constructed to provide housing for the workers of the Hoover Dam in 1932. At that time, alcohol, gambling, and the formation of unions were all strictly prohibited. To this day gambling was never made legal in Boulder City, so if you want to take a break from gambling away your money in Vegas, take a relaxing trip to this refreshing city and just hang around and enjoy.

Address: Boulder City, Nevada, 89005
Directions: Boulder City, Nevada, 89005, Along US Route 93 going to Lake Mead and Hoover Dam.
