Hoover Dam Discovery Tour
Friday, Dec. 6, 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Enjoy a history-filled ride as you travel from the Las Vegas Strip, 30 miles east to Boulder City, to the location of the Hoover Dam. Upon arrival to the dam, you will begin the self-guided tour making several stops, including a brief video introduction followed by a trip down 530 feet through the rock wall of the Black Canyon to view eight of the 17 generators.
A stroll on the observation deck is essential, as it offers the perfect panoramic views of the Hoover Dam, Colorado River and Lake Mead. You will also enjoy seeing the O’Callaghan/Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge that was built to alleviate the traffic caused by 15,000 people passing through each day. Additional stops on the tour include the Winged Figures of the Republic, the spillways (large enough to float a WWII battleship) and the intake towers.
Participants will have approximately two hours at the Hoover Dam to leisurely tour and learn about this masterful site. Snacks and beverages will be provided. The tour departs from the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Cost: $115 per person
