Don't miss it, totally incredible. I would recommend this to all that are in the Vegas area. Don't waste your money on the slots, give it to the Hoover Dam.

We went to the Hoover Dam after visiting the Valley of Fire. It tainted my view of how remarkable and important the dam was and is. The history of how many presidents worked on this project before it finally became a reality was very interesting....More

A great way to take a break from the strip! The cost is $10 per car and its located less than a 35 minute drive from the MGM hotel. I would definitely recommend visiting if you will be spending a week or more in Vegas!

I believe so. There is a parking garage on one side and a open air parking area across dam on Arizona side. Little bit of a walk but not horrible.
