A n definite stop when you enter Nevada from Arizona. You can climb stairs or use a ramp to get to the highway level and have a full front view of the dam.

This is a very impressive dam nearby Las Vegas. You can see it from the motorway or decide to action a focused visit. In any case, you will enjoy the majestic view.

We stopped briefly on our way out to the Grand Canyon and what a view....so amazing to know how and why this was build and so long ago! Worth making the stop - we didn't do the full tour - not sure I would want to with the limited time we had - but well worth the hour stop we made to read up about the dam and take a few photos.

We drove over the bridge, which, in my opinion, offers the best views. We then parked and did an underground tour (it was the only tour we could do with a stroller). I could barely hear what was said on the tour, as I was staying away from most people and focusing on my kids, so I missed a lot. But walking around outside is a nice way to take it all in.

It is a powerful view from the bridge. We did not take a power plant tour because of time restrictions. If you are close by, visit. Don't drive two hours, though 😊.

It was a beautiful day 62 degrees with sun. We walked the railroad trail to see Hoover Dam. There is a cafe to get food or an ice cream at Hoover Dam and they offer tours. Just enjoyed the outside structure and bridge.

We did this as part of our Hoover Dam tour - what a feat to see. It is walkable to go to the bridge and great picture opportunities!

The sheer scale of this place is something else. It's quite the feat of engineering, and finding out the stories about how it was all constructed is so educational. If you don't have time to drive to the grand canyon, take a trip here, and then the scenic route home. Well worth it!

See this before the water is gone! Impressive views of the bridge and Hoover Dam area. Only disappointments were that the explanatory signage is sun bleached or worn, and the water is receeding.

It was awesome to learn more about the bypass and able to go take pictures of the dam. The only issue is that the bypass is pretty much unfinished in my opinion, at least for the pedestrians. I think it’d be great if you could have another exit/ entrance on the Arizona side instead of a wall. But the views are nice.
