Hoover Dam

Standing 725 feet above the Colorado River, Hoover Dam is a sight not to be missed. It is the second highest dam in the United States behind the Ororville Dam in California at 754 feet. Named Hoover Dam, for former President Herbert Hoover, construction on the dam began back in 1933 with the last bit of concrete being poured in June of 1935. One of the highlights of Hoover Dam is the artwork collection by Norwegian-born, naturalized American Oskar J.W. Hansen. According to Hansen, much of the sculpture represented for him, "a monument to collective genius exerting itself in community efforts around a common need or ideal."

For an in-depth and more educational experience, take the Discovery Tour. You'll learn all about the construction of this great wonder, plus the rich history of agony and accomplishment that made it all possible.

Located in a desert climate, Hoover Dam gets extremely hot during the summer. It is recommended that you wear light clothing and a hat, use sun screen and sun glasses, and carry water bottles. (Food, chewing gum, canned drinks and drinks in cups are NOT allowed on tour or in the buildings.)

Afterwards, enjoy a stop at Ethel M's Chocolate Factory and Desert Botanical Garden, one of Southern Nevada's most interesting draws. See how chocolates are made and take a stroll around a beautiful water conservation garden.

Tour duration for both tours is approximately 6 hours from hotel to hotel.

Times: 7:30 am and 10:45 am hotel pickups
