Visit Hoover Dam, Learn its History & See How it Works!

Just 35 miles Southeast of Las Vegas lies one of America's Modern Civil Engineering Wonders.

Sitting on the border of Nevada & Arizona, Hoover Dam was built from 1931-1935 during the Great Depression & is still in use over 80 years later!
Walk the top of the Dam & imagine being a construction worker, in a barren land, working on one of the greatest projects since the Great Pryamids were constructed. The Art Deco designs, beautiful landscape & unbelievable history will make this trip a memorable one!
