On my way north out of the grand canyon area I took a moment to enjoy the view from the visitors center and walk through the miniature muesum. Good place to stretch your legs and use a clean bathroom as well.

We just had a quick stop to stretch our legs. Perfect for everyone: educational, hands-on displays, an interesting outdoor area with views for some walking, clean bathrooms.

Could not see Hoover Dam but seeing Glen Canyon Dam probably minimised the regret. It's an engineering marvel , beautiful views and surroundings. You can park the car before bridge and can walk at the bridge to see the Dam.

You don't have to book any tour, or pay any money to walk on the bridge, look around the Dam and take photos . Just make sure you have a hat, cold water bottle, as the sun is very strong. And enjoy . :-)
