Why Visit Hoover Dam?

Reaching more than 700 feet tall and stretching over 1,200 feet across Black Canyon, the Hoover Dam is one of the Southwest's most impressive man-made sights. Snap a pic of the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, see the imposing concrete walls from two states, and learn about the history of the Dam as you venture deep inside to view the massive generators. Turn to the northeast for stunning vistas of picturesque Lake Mead—the nation's largest reservoiar, covering 248 square miles.

The Hoover Dam is located just a few miles southeast of Las Vegas. Stop for a photo op en route to the Grand Canyon, or hop on a guided Hoover Dam tour. With a number of tour options available, the Hoover Dam is both educational and entertaining, making it the perfect excursion for your family’s Vegas adventure. If you only have a few hours or even a full day, it's easy to find a Hoover Dam tour that fits into your schedule.

The Hoover Dam is a short 30 minute drive from the Las Vegas Strip. Guided bus tours to the Grand Canyon will cross the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge, and may include photo stops. Aerial Grand Canyon tours soar over the Dam, offering some of the most impressive views of this famous structure.
