You don't realise how vast Hoover Dam is until you have the opportunity to walk across it. We had our own car so drove from the Strip and it took approx 45 minutes. I recommend leaving early if not going on a group tour as it is quieter and there is free parking available on the Arizona side. Such a... More

The dam itself is fascinating which I was not expecting! Lovely pictures to be taken. The history is something special. There are ample toilets and the... More

I visited there with friends, the view of dam and the bridge was amazing. By the time we reached there it was afternoon, it was hot and we were sweating, but evenings would be pleasant I guess. A must visit if you are in Vegas and especially if you are in construction field.

Impressive on account of its size and the purpose it serves. You have to park a ways away and walk to the dam to cross or walk on it. The only thing it brought to mind was the Transformers Movie. Sorry can't say more.
