I've pulled a 34' trailer over the damn and this bye pass eliminates the stress of getting from north to south in a tow rig. True, you can't see anything but the road but THAT'S THE POINT OF A BYE PASS.

Rated this very good vs excellent because we did not get a chance to see the water. We got a good history lesson and was able to walk part of the bridge but due to time contraints we were rushed to keep traveling to the...More

I have googled "discount coupons for hoover dam tours" and do get returns from the sites, groupon and city. just check out the tour you want and contact the provider for a discount code. depending on time of year of visit, you will get it. We also had some in the hotel - but ended up renting a car.

re hover dam... first time out there? it was mine and let me tell ya, there really is not many choices on roads or scenery, lol. once you leave vegas heading toward Hoover Dam, not much except Boulder, which would have places to eat. We didn't stop but the little town did leave an impression as "quaint", think we passed a "train ride" passing thru and 1 grocery store. the scenery is everywhere, the expanse with nothing, the mountain tops looming near and far.... then suddenly you spot a lake (or is that a mirage?) and there it is.... Grand, man made and inspiring, the dam and the surrounding infrastructure show what extreme measures it took to harness nature, for better or worse as you will see by the visual water lines, +100's of feet above the current water level which our driver states is as much or perhaps even more a result of poor water management as any natural event. Be that as it may, seeing that line does give a dramatic perspective, especially in photos.
