Hoover Dam

Hoover Dam

Thousands of people a day travel to the Hoover Dam, which is only about 45 minutes away from the Strip. From the overlook—when you look straight down from its 726 feet—you’ll get amazing views of the dam, Lake Mead, the Black Canyon and the Colorado River. There are two tours available: one of the power plant, and one that travels the passageways of the dam (most people prefer the latter).
