You can really see how amazing this dam really is from this bypass. Just take it slow and enjoy the scenery.

if you have the time to stop for pictures, then this is a good stop for you. Easy parking, easy walk over to it from the parking. Not good for someone that uses a walker though.

This was a great stop along the way to the Grand Canyon. We made a short pit stop here but it was long enough to see the dam and get some great pictures. Our driver (via Grand Adventures) parked up and we walked across the...More

What an amazing adventure. This is a must see for Vegas visitors. Interesting story on how it was built and for those who lost their lives while building it. Make sure you stop where when in Vegas.

Seeing the Hoover Dam really was pretty cool. The layout is well done with information strewn about the place. I would take your hat off before getting to the bridge, plenty of hats end up over the side with the strong winds there.

Park free at the start of the dam, coming from Boulder. There plenty of steps, but also ramps for wheelchairs. It's an amazing piece of engineering. You can view the dam from above - it's well worth the climb.
