A nice ending to our Hoover Dam visit. A bit of a long upward walk from the parking lot, with an extended (zig-zag) ramp. One person in our party opted not to do the ramp/walk. Interestingly, teens in our group that resisted visiting the dam,...More
Perfect photo op of Hoover Dam! After the security check point, you'll see a turn out with it's a parking lot. Parking and Bridge are free. Wheelchair friendly ramps up to the bridge. But, the bridge can be crowded.

There is a large parking lot and nice walkway to get to the bridge. It is however a bit of a hike for anyone mobility challenged- they do have ramps to make it accessible for everyone it is windy o the bridge- make suer to...More
We enjoyed the visit and walking on the bridge. It is a great engineering accomplishment, history and details nicely presented in a layman’s language to general visitors. Walking on the bridge is not recommended to those with fear of heights.
This bridge definitely seemed intimidating as you view it from below! It’s an easy walk, breathtaking views and a once in a lifetime walk! The walkways are secured with guards to keep the automobiles etc. away from the pedestrians. This is definitely a moment to...More
The view of Hoover Dam is excellent from this high fly over. It is a steep climb up a series of steps to get there but well worth the effort.
It gets very busy when coaches arrive and all those people pay no respect for...More
Travelling from East to West you cross the bridge in the car.

You must make a detour off the main highway to actually drive across the dam. If you are coming from Kingman, AZ (US-93 from I-40) you will cross the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge just before you exit for the dam. You cannot see the dam from the highway portion of the bridge due to a high concrete barrier, erected to prevent accidents due to people slowing or stopping to look at the dam in the high-speed lanes of US-93. You can also exit right after the bridge to a large parking area where you can walk out onto, or across, the bridge on a walkway on the other side of the concrete barrier. This offers excellent views and photo-ops of the dam and Lake Meade.
