We stopped here on our way to the Grand Canyon. It was an amazing place to see and take some photos. It had rest rooms and a shop for water or a souvenir. We found free parking but it did come with a bit of...More
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.
My friend and I flew in a small 6 passenger air plane to the Arizona side, then by bus went to see the dam. The Colorado river was a sight to behold, along with the canyons.
All of this history is wonderful to read about,...More

re hover dam... first time out there? it was mine and let me tell ya, there really is not many choices on roads or scenery, lol. once you leave vegas heading toward Hoover Dam, not much except Boulder, which would have places to eat. We didn't stop but the little town did leave an impression as "quaint", think we passed a "train ride" passing thru and 1 grocery store. the scenery is everywhere, the expanse with nothing, the mountain tops looming near and far.... then suddenly you spot a lake (or is that a mirage?) and there it is.... Grand, man made and inspiring, the dam and the surrounding infrastructure show what extreme measures it took to harness nature, for better or worse as you will see by the visual water lines, +100's of feet above the current water level which our driver states is as much or perhaps even more a result of poor water management as any natural event. Be that as it may, seeing that line does give a dramatic perspective, especially in photos.
The parking area is on the road down to the dam from the Freeway US-93/I-11). About 1 mile from the dam, on the right. It is well marked, and you can't miss it - parking lot, stairs/ramp up to the O'Callaghan/Tillman... More
The parking area is on the road down to the dam from the Freeway US-93/I-11). About 1 mile from the dam, on the right. It is well marked, and you can't miss it - parking lot, stairs/ramp up to the O'Callaghan/Tillman bridge crossing. You can walk all the way across the bridge - 1 mile downstream and 1000 feet above the river - spectacular.
