We went to the Dam on our way to the Grand Canyon and didn't stop for more than 10 minutes for photos but I believe if you get a longer time there you can walk across the top and have a better experience.

Such an iconic dam! Really interesting to see the Art Deco design idioms. Pretty cool to hop between Arizona and Nevada - effectively hoping through time zones!

Which is always the experience I prefer when driving over a bridge that crosses over a large gorge and river. Just my opinion.
