Great guides and rangers and movies about the dam, the building of it, and all else. We went on the tour and enjoyed our time. Amazing work went into that and all others we have! We enjoyed the "Standing Tall" movie.

If you are impressed by the Hoover Dam you need to see the Glen Canyon Dam in Page, AZ. Then go see Lake Powell after that.

A visit to Lake Powell would be limited without a visit to Glen Canyon Dam and museum. This great museum explains the history and has short movies to really tell the story of how it was built. The tour is fascinating as well.

yes...they can. Inexpensive....maybe $5. There was construction going on last fall so you could not go down into dam. Was still a good tour.

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 . :-)

Which hotel are you looking at? You can call the hotel and ask them for a mini fridge. Sometimes you can get one for free, and sometimes they charge $5 a day. Most of the hotels we stayed at had mini fridges.
