Grayline Tours is known for providing top-notch tours so it’s a no-brainer to make them your choice for exploration beyond the bright lights of Vegas. While there is so much to do in Sin City, you definitely don’t want to miss out, on the things to see off The Strip. This includes the magnificent, man-made architectural wonder that is The Hoover Dam. It’s one of those things that you simply must see in at least once in your lifetime. Trust us.
THE HOOVER DAM
Built during the 1930’s, The Hoover Dam still stands today as one of the most important engineering accomplishments of the last century. And considering that it is the provider of hydraulic power to three states, as well as being responsible for controlling floodwaters, it’s an incredible marvel of man-made construction worth seeing up close and personal. Over a million people visit the dam every single year. There’s nothing quite like standing on the view deck, with the river below. You may even experience a flashback to that crazy scene in “Transformers” where Bumble Bee is scaling the walls. Yeah, remember that? The shear magnitude of this place is why the crowds come in droves.
Located less than 40 miles from Las Vegas, it’s the perfect half-day trip but it’s highly recommended to let Grayline Tours be your guide to and from the Hoover Dam. Upon arrival at the dam, you’ll be taken on a VIP tour with a guide from the U.S. Government. You’ll also see the newly built Visitors Center, the museum and of course, everyone’s favorite spot, the gift shop.
With Grayline Tours, enjoy the comfort a luxury motor coach that features reclining seats and comfortable foot rests. Fully air-conditioned (as well as equipped with on board bathrooms) this is the smart way to travel from Vegas to The Hoover Dam.
