Drove to Hoover Dam from Vegas, took about 50 minutes. $10 parking near the visitor center but would recommend driving across and you park for free. Parking there allows you to enjoy walking across the dam to the visitor center while taking in the awesome...More

The Hoover Dam isn't always the first thing that comes to mind when you think of being near Las Vegas, but I'd definitely recommend visiting. There are some good views and photo opportunities!

We decided not to go for the full tour, the bridge was scenic and breathtaking. Crossing the bridge from Nevada to Arizona on foot we could take in everything and more. Parking is $30, so we lived in the moment spending time viewing the beautiful...More

We went to the Hoover Dam after visiting the Valley of Fire. It was $10 to park. We walked along the road and went into the storefront. It was interesting to see the engineering marvel but there wasn’t much else to see.

The drive from Las Vegas to the dam was great. Coming into the dam, the view of Lake Meade was unbelievable. If you miss this while in LB, you're doing your self a disservice

Our tour guide was a bit unaware of how his voice carried when speaking, but the tour was enjoyable nevertheless. I would not recommend this for someone who cannot manage lots of stairs, plenty of walking/standing and also small spaces. Those with a fear of...More

I'd also recommend renting a car, much cheaper, and much faster. Plus you can go when and where you want. The bus takes a long time to get all the people from the various hotels and the same on the way back. Drive to... More
