Tour the engineering feat that is the Hoover Dam, a National Historic Landmark on the mighty Colorado River, only a short distance from Las Vegas. The Dam, built during the Great Depression, spans approximately 245 square miles of surface area and took 3.25 million yards of concrete to construct. Irrigating over 1,000,00 acres and providing water to 8,000,000 people in Arizona, California, and Nevada, the Dam continues to play an essential role for the surrounding economy and their inhabitants. During the tour of the Hoover Dam, you will be treated to the best views from both the Arizona and Nevada sides of the Colorado River. The Mike O’Callaghan/Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, (The Dam Bridge) now offers the highest accessible overlook of the Dam and Black Canyon and will be seen from the top of Hoover Dam.
