The Hoover Dam isn't always the first thing that comes to mind when you think of being near Las Vegas, but I'd definitely recommend visiting. There are some good views and photo opportunities!

We decided not to go for the full tour, the bridge was scenic and breathtaking. Crossing the bridge from Nevada to Arizona on foot we could take in everything and more. Parking is $30, so we lived in the moment spending time viewing the beautiful...More
