Experience a national historic landmark in all its glory. The Hoover Dam has been named one of the top 10 construction achievements of the 20th century, and when you see it for yourself, you’ll understand why. Located just 30 minutes south of Las Vegas, taking a trip to this attraction is at the top of the to-do list for most Vegas visitors.
The Hoover Dam towers 725 above the Colorado River, making it the highest concrete dam in the Western Hemisphere. To get the best view, you’ll want to walk over the walkway bridge and look down 900 feet to the river below. You can also drive across the bridge if you prefer.
