A review of this place will not do it justice - if you're in the area just go there. It's a real sight to behold.

Loved the view! Awesome! Breathtaking! This place was a plus to see as we drove from Las Vegas to Phoenix.

Amazing to see. Its a must stop site of awe and wonder. The elevators weren't working so no tours. They do recommend you call ahead to see if the elevators are working on any given day before showing up. Regardless, the entire structure is flat...More

We hear a lot about Hoover Dam being near Las Vegas. When we made the trip out here it was early enough for us to head over that way in the afternoon to take in this attraction. They have a great access across the dam...More

The Hoover Dam Bypass began construction in 2003 and opened to traffic on October 2010 to bypass several blind, sharp hairpin curves that were prevalent on the approach roads to Hoover Dam and to help facilitate increasing traffic between Las Vegas and Arizona (especially Phoenix)...More

Having managed the only US President's house outside America (his), I know a little about Hoover, so I was very interested in seeing the dam. Unfortunately, due to a unforeseen glitch we were late getting away, and didn't get to spend the amount of time...More

Visited the Hoover Dam on our way to the Grand Canyon as part of a 14 day tour. Very windy as we walked across the viewing platform but the views were fantastic. Well worth the visit

Third time we have visited in almost 50 years. The staff is wonderful and they continue to improve the tourist experience by adding to the exhibits. They do a great job in handling the crowds, parking, etc. The Dam itself never fails to overwhelm you...More

Purchased the Hoover Dam, with Power Plant tour (up-charge)...only to be told, as we were going into the exhibit, it was closed "that day." Turns out the Power Plant tour has been closed for over 1.5 months. Would recommend verifying if Power Plant tours are...More

You could spend easily 4 hours there if you read all info and listen to the talks...hopefully the turbines would be open to view...unfortunately the lifts were out when we went. Nice cafe there too.

We rented a car. However, while we were at the dam and bridge, we saw several tour buses. I guess you would have to see if the tour stopped at the bridge.

I can't imagine that you can fully appreciate the magnitude of this dam without taking the tour and going down into the belly of this beast. Yes the outside areas are incredible but even more so is what's underground and... More
