Visiting Hoover Dam From Las Vegas

Located near Boulder City, Nevada the Hoover Dam has been open since 1936. The highly populated Dam is visited by nearly a million tourists a year, who also visit Las Vegas and enjoy road trips through Nevada and Arizona. Situated in Black Canyon on the border, it holds back the Colorado River and Lake Mead, with the Dam provides power and hydro-electricity to both states as well as California.

Page is located on route 89, which we followed during our Scenic Route 89A through the Vermillion Cliffs and Navajo Bridge. But for our trip, we headed south to Route 66 for the next step in our American adventure!
