Hoover Dam

High and Mighty

 

The Hoover Dam was no simple undertaking. It took serious guts. You have to be brave to suggest building what was once the tallest dam in the world. You have to be brave to be the guy on site, every day, building it. And to this day, you have to be brave to peek over the edge, 900 feet above the earth.  

 

As a groundbreaking engineering project and the biggest dam of its time, the Hoover Dam is a modern wonder that can’t be missed. The Hoover Dam Tour Center is open every day of the year, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. except Thanksgiving and Christmas. Tickets sold until 4:15 p.m. Recommend visitors arrive by 3 p.m.

Lake Mead

More than Just a Lake

 

You may be familiar with Lake Mojave or Lake Mead. You may have even fished, floated, swam or boated in one of these incredible lakes. But that’s just 13 percent of Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The rest is a land of trails, scenic drives and campsites, waiting to be uncovered. 

The recreation area is open 24/7, year-round. The Lake Mead Visitors Center is open 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily.
