Description

Escape the hustle and bustle of The Vegas Strip, venturing into the desert to uncover the history and mechanics behind the Hoover Dam. The world’s largest power-producing facility when it was built in 1935, the Hoover Dam remains a world-renowned feat of engineering.

Hop aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned bus for a scenic drive through the desert, checking out the flora and fauna of this arid landscape as you make your way toward Hoover Dam. Towering 726.4 feet (221.4 m) above the Colorado River, the dam is one of the biggest concrete structures on the planet.

Take the Powerplant Tour, viewing the 17 turbine generators at work and learning how they transform flowing water into enough electricity to power a major portion of the American Southwest. While you walk the facility, listen to commentary on the structure’s controversies, tragedies, and first-of-its-kind technology and architecture.

Next, step out for a view of the Arizona Spillway, which tunnels water from Lake Mead deep into the canyon walls through a chute wide enough to fit a WWII battleship. From the Arizona Lookout's dramatic viewpoint, enjoy panoramic vistas of Lake Mead and its vivid desert backdrop, before boarding your bus back to Sin City.
