We recommend letting Sweetours drive you to and from the Hoover Dam. Bill C was our driver~tour guide and he did an excellent job.

I enjoyed my visit to the Hoover Dam so much. I learned about its building period, the history of the dam and its inner workings. I was a little surprised at how tiny the plaque for the Native American contribution was considering the message, which...More

Treat yourself to a drive through the National Park surrounding Lake Mead. $25 for a 1-7 day pass if you don't have a National Park Pass.

We were on our way back from driving to the West Rim Grand Canyon and decided to stop to see the Hoover Dam. It's pretty cool! I am glad I didn't pay for a tour, as I could see it all from the various free...More

You can get a good view of the dam from the bypass -- and a little bit of Lake Mead -- but for the full experience, take the time to do one of the tours or at least park down by the dam and walk...More

Nice to see once, but would not revisit. Overpriced for what you see. Not much of any interaction at this site.

If you are coming from Vegas stop here before your dam tour for great views! Leave hats in the car though. It is windy!

This is a stop that I would recommend. We missed it the first time we went to Las Vegas, glad we did not miss it this time. It is worth seeing at least once.

Excellent addition to engineering ingenuity for a view of the Hoover Dam. Easy access from the parking lot and the climb up the bridge isn't strenuous at all despite the height of the bridge. What a way to marvel at the dam!

The sheer scale of this will make your jaw drop. The history too is fascinating. Make sure you visit if you're doing The Grand Canyon as it's on the way from Vegas.

I honestly would say "no". They will not fully understand. Sorry. I mean even as an adult I was just amazed at it.

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
