Recently I was in Las Vegas for a week. The initial thought most people have is day parties, gambling and shows!! Well, my week in Vegas was very different. I was there for work, so none of that was involved. My meetings started a 8 AM and ended at 5 PM with a social dinner included. So, that meant hardly any time for sleep. On the last day it was a half day and my coworkers and I took to a quick adventure to see Hoover Dam.
It was surprisingly a very quick trip. Our hotel (Westin Resort & Spa) had an Enterprise there. So we booked a few cars an drove about 40 minutes to Hoover Dam.
I actually learned a lot about why the Dam was built, how it was built, and how it is maintained and used today. I also learned about other dams I have no idea existed. In addition to these lessons, it was a beautiful drive with a few lookouts for you to grab nice photos.
I highly recommend if you have some time to rent a car and head out. We did the 1 hr tour for $30 while the 30 minute tour was $15. I think it was well worth the additional $15 as you got to see 2 additional locations in the dam.
If you need help booking a hotel and car rental contact me here.
If you rather book a tour that can pick you up and bring you back to you hotel here are some tours that are highly rated.
