Hoover Dam Half-Day Trip Itinerary

After being picked up from your hotel in Las Vegas at 8 am, you'll set off for the Hoover Dam. Relax during the approximately 37-mile journey on the comfortable air-conditioned bus. 

Located in the Colorado River's Black Canyon, this megastructure, named after U.S. President Herbert Hoover, was built during the Great Depression in the 1930s. Learn all about the complex construction process on board with an audiovisual presentation - taking in the creation of the dam, designed to prevent flooding as well as its production of hydroelectric power provision of irrigation water. An incredible project for its time, using unproven techniques and involving the effort of thousands of workers, the Hoover Dam was unbelievably completed on time and in budget.

You'll also hear all about the power station's enormous generators in the turbine room, discovering how the dam still to this day provides power and water to millions of people across Nevada, Arizona and parts of California.

For the finishing touch on your half-day tour, head up to the Lake Mead viewpoints to enjoy spectacular views of the Hoover Dam, the Colorado River and the surrounding rocky desert typical of the southwestern United States. As you admire the stunning scenery, see if you remember the Hoover Dam's starring role in a number of movies filmed here, including SupermanSan Andreas and Transformers.

From here, you'll return to your hotel in Las Vegas for about 12 pm.
