As one of the most iconic man-made structures in the American West, it's no surprise that many Las Vegas travelers make it a point to see the Hoover Dam while they are in town. This popular Las Vegas day trip can be enjoyed in a variety of different ways.
Here's how you can get from Las Vegas to the Hoover Dam:
Travelers can book a bus tour from Las Vegas to the Hoover Dam through any number of tour companies. Many of these bus tours leave Las Vegas in the morning, arriving at the Hoover Dam in time for an early tour and additional exploration of the area. Depending on the tour, lunch may be provided. Many of these bus tours can be personalized with additional excursions, such as river tours or helicopter rides once you arrive at the Hoover Dam.
Those who prefer adventure and who like to travel at their own pace may prefer to drive themselves to the Hoover Dam. Visitors who have a car or who have rented one for their trip will find that this 33-mile drive can be completed in about 45 minutes in good traffic. When you drive your own car, you have the flexibility to explore the Hoover Dam at your leisure and add on any number of additional activities.
One way to transform a typical day trip to the Hoover Dam into a once-in-a-lifetime adventure is to book a helicopter tour. There are many flights that take off from Las Vegas and take visitors on a trip through the sky to the dam. They get an aerial view, as well as an opportunity to land nearby and explore the region.
It's easy to enhance your Hoover Dam excursion with additional tours and activities that allow you to experience the region that surrounds it. For example, a Black Canyon River Tour takes you and your travel party on a guided float along the Colorado River and through the majestic Black Canyon. This tour takes place daily, and is the perfect complement to any Hoover Dam day trip.
