30 miles from Las Vegas lies the Hoover Dam and it is well worth a visit. The Power plant tour is $11 per adult and takes you 530 feet down inside the dam (on the longest 70 second elevator ride!). The half hour tour is well worth the money and is a nice reprieve from the heat! Really wanted to see the Bighorn Sheep, and was told the the easiest and most reliable place to get a view of them was at Hemenway Park!
It was really amusing to see a whole herd of sheep wandering around the kids' playground. Not surprising they were there...lush grass for snacking.  Lake mead and Boulder beach  A small town by Hoover Dam. Many of the buildings around were built during Hoover Dam's construction years. This town was for the people who were working on building Hoover Dam to live in. Old railroad tunnel where railroad tracks used to lay. Now a hiking trail along lake mead with a total of 5 massive tunnels that lead to the Hoover Dam. You can ride these old retired trains Saturday and Sundays (check their website for departure times) OR you could just go there during closing and take pictures... Like we did haha •
#Nevada #BoulderCity #Trains #Railroad Railroad tunnel hike Leads to Hoover Damn with beautiful views of Lake Mead In tunnel 1 of 5 Blasted Rock Concrete Plugs that were built as placeholders in the powerhouse floor at Hoover Dam. They were removed later when the turbines were installed to generate electricity. The final one was removed in 1961. Hover Dam- worth the tour. #architecture #waterlust This was our best bike ride yet! 6 miles of awesome trail that ends at Hoover Dam. Personally it was the best way to see it:.. #trail #biking #lakemead #nevada Love the desert sky While in Las Vegas we took a short drive over to Boulder Canyon (30 mins from the strip) to try out this amazing Zip-lining adventure.
While it's not cheap at $159 per person, it's a much better deal than gambling it away and far more memorable.
They do take safety seriously (which I was very appreciative of, especially considering my paralytic fear of heights).
The first thing you do after signing in is enter a training class where you're taught the ins and outs of the gear / harness you'll be wearing as well as how to travel the ziplines. In other words, how to cruise, start and stop etc...
To be perfectly honest with you, the single most frightening thing about the experience happens next.
You enter a short bus or van with the guides and group. The bus travels along a View of Tunnel & Lake Mead There are already a lot of pics of the 5 tunnels, so here is some additional info. I did this trail yesterday with my husband. The sign says danger...heat kills. I had to be rescued. I couldn't make the last half mile to the trail head. I hike a lot so took the necessary precautions: hat, sunblock, water, electrolytes, snack, cell, good shoes.
The trailhead if off SR93, very easy to find at the Lake Mead visitors center. Takes less than 30 mins from Las Vegas. There is a series of 5 tunnels. The trail is wide, packed sand and gravel. No shade except inside the tunnels. Just after tunnel 5 (upper L) there is a shaded picnic table, water fountain, toilets. From this point it's another 2mi to Hoover Dam. Views of Lake Mead are fantastic.
Hints: Stay away Jun-Jul-Aug. Take twice the amount of water that you normally would take, 70-100 sunblock, hat with a wide brim, UMBRELLA when the temp is high, enclosed shoes..no sandals (Your feet will burn), lip block, polarized sunglasses, dry mouth lozenges, and eye drops.
Boulder City is just a couple miles away, with lots of fast food, restaurants, drug stores, supermarkets, fuel, hospital, etc. We set up camp at night and somehow woke up with a lake view and a beautiful sunrise.
