We will take you right from the Las Vegas Strip to experience the world-famous Hoover Dam quality tour. Guests will arrive at the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge to behold the Hoover Dam from a 900-foot bridge above the Colorado River and Black Rock Canyon. Afterwards, we will stop at the visitor center at the summit of Hoover Dam where guests can visit and take photos.
Hoover Dam was named after Herbert C. Hoover, the 31st president of the United States. It is the largest hydroelectric power station in the western United States today and also one of the most important power providers in the United States. Without the Hoover Dam, Las Vegas would never be able to have the casinos, neon lights, and glittering nightlife that made it what it is. For more than 80 years, visitors have steadily poured in to see the dam’s spectacular grandeur.
From the outside, you’ll be able to see the iconic dam that has appeared in many films and television shows including the Transformers films and San Andreas. Inside the dam are housed 27 giant turbine engines that support its daily operation. Visitors will have the opportunity to have a panoramic view of the room while electricity is generating. The exhibition showroom will be a great place for guests to learn more about the historical background of the dam.
Hoover Dam straddles both Nevada and Arizona and may have a 1-hour time difference depending on the season. After boarding the top of the dam, guests can not only experience the visual impact of “Mountains that seem like hills”, but also can freely cross between the two states. At the top of the dam, the junction of the two states is marked as a popular photo spot. Put one foot in Nevada, the other in Arizona: just what time zone are you in?
