Following pickup at select Las Vegas hotels, climb aboard your luxury Hummer H2 for a comfortable, air-conditioned ride to the Hoover Dam.
As you cruise past Boulder City, Lake Mead, and the entrance to the Black Canyon, watch a DVD about the history of the dam. Learn some of the background information about the construction and history of the dam so you're more than ready for the Discovery Tour.
The Discovery Tour includes an exploration of several areas. In the Exhibit Gallery, view displays on the region’s natural history and the operational history of the dam. Wander through murals, maps, and displays on the Theater Level that document the history of the Hoover Dam. Watch 'How the West was Won', a short video that details the Bureau of Reclamation’s part in growing food and taming the rivers and the desert.
Ride an elevator 500 feet (152 meters) down into the Black Canyon’s walls and walk through the 250-foot (76-meter) tunnel drilled out of rock. Visit the eight generators in the Nevada wing of the power plant.
At the end of your tour, climb back aboard your Hummer H2 and head back to Vegas in style for hotel drop-off.
