Pat Tillman Bridge with View of the Dam

So I thought this was built to keep cars from crossing the dam, which isn't the case. You can still cross directly over the dam. The best view to get a panoramic view is from the... read more

So I thought this was built to keep cars from crossing the dam, which isn't the case. You can still cross directly over the dam. The best view to get a panoramic view is from the By-Pass Bridge. There is a pull off parking area for the By-Pass Bridge as you drive down toward the dam. Lots of stairs, with... More

This is a great place to see the dam and river flows. There will be some effort to get to the bridge a little slope up. Parking can be a problem during busy times but it's free.

We drove up and eventually found a parking space (but the parking lot was full when we left - probably worth getting there early), and decided to do the $15 Power Plant Tour. It was well worth it, a really enjoyable trip, great guide, and learnt some interesting facts about the dam's construction and use. It was well split up,... More

fun, totally different view of dam than going over. awesome how it diverts traffic from dam, all that traffic made if very difficult to go to dam. the dam is a definite not miss for anyone, what an awesome tour to take, but the over view is not to be missed either.

We drove to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas and were looking forward to seeing the Dam area. Oh my goodness - talk about UGLY!!! The bit of Lake Mead we could see from the highway looked totally lifeless and dead. The land around it was the same. It was so void of any living thing that it was creepy.... More

The trip from Kingman to Las Vegas brought us to the popular destination...the Hoover Dam. There are plenty of overlooks you can drive to yourself. Don't waste your money parking unless you plan to walk for a ways. It is not as grand as expected

The Hoover Dam cannot be seen from the highway but take the exit to the dam and enjoy the view. It's free to park once you are pass security. I didn't take the paid tour so I can't tell you how much it cost. There is a nice walk to the dam depending on how far up the road you... More
