Boulder City, NV was built from 1931 to house the thousands of construction workers and some of their families while building the Hoover Dam. The downtown area is called Nevada Way. Before the bypass was built (they tell me), all traffic on U.S. Hwy. 93 came this way. But that was a long time ago. My wife and I had... More

The Railroad Tunnel Trail is a wonderful hike with great views of Lake Mead and the Pat Tillman Bridge. It is not quite a hike, not much change in elevation, but you are descending along the trail which will eventually come to the Hoover Dam Visitor's Center. We walked almost 2.5 miles before we noticed how far we had gone... More

Instead of the bypass toward hoover dam take the Nevada way into the heart of the old historic city built for the workers of the Hoover Dam. Along the Nevada Way ( main Street) you have great antique stores excellent wine bars and more than a cold brew or two in a number of stops. There are gift stores and... More

Boulder City is a great place to spend several hours in a small town atmosphere. One of their main streets is called Nevada Way with several restaurants, souvenir places, and antique stores. There are many pieces of public art, some are for sale. Also, this used to be the main route to the Hoover Dam.

The local government decided to spend a fortune on planting about 100 palm trees and a huge gazebo looking thing at the beginning of the old town. What with making the road narrower and putting a center divider in it cuts down on parking. What a waist of money. Also how much is it going to cost just to just... More

We stopped here after visiting the hoover dam. We wanted to go to a restaurant called the coffee cup which was featured on Diners Drive-ins and Dives, but it closed at 2pm. I was pretty bummed, but we found a nice brewery across the street to have lunch in. The place is small, but there are a few small mom... More

Granted, the few blocks in Boulder City that are lined with shops and restaurants are cute, and probably worth the trip from Vegas to get away from the neon, concrete, and strip malls. I stopped in the Coffee Cup and enjoyed a very tasty bbq sandwich, with friendly service but in dark, drab surroundings in the side dining room. I... More

A few blocks of Nevada Way, especially between Ash St./Wyoming St. and Colorado St., make for a pleasant stroll. The street is lined with little curio shops and dining establishments. We were especially impressed by all the fine statues.

If you love poking around in little shops, you'll love walking around Nevada Way in downtown Boulder City. Most of the bars have live music on Friday and Saturday evenings, starting around 8 pm, and for a small town, you have a good choice of eateries.

The Railroad Tunnel Trail is just out of Boulder City, Nevada. Take the turnoff for Lake Mead National Recreation area. Then take a quick right in to the trail parking lot and you can park for free. Scenic views of Lake Mead and the surrounding mountains gave us an excuse to picnic in the car before heading off on our... More
