If you visit Las Vegas, Hoover Dam is a must see while you're there. It's only 30 miles east of Vegas on the Boulder Highway, and tours of the Museum are free, and they're fascinating! The deco design of the dam (don't you love those gargoyles that greet you on the facade?) is carried on throughout the entry way and offices, and it brings back memories of the 1930s when the dam was built. It's architecture of a bygone era and it's amazing that so much style and substance went in to such a huge structure. You can also take a tour that takes you down in an elevator into the very bowels of the dam. You'll see the turbine room where hydroelectric power is created. Parking is $5 * Tour Admission: Adults (Ages 17-61) $10.00 * Seniors (62+) $8.00 * Juniors (Ages 7-16) $5.00 * U.S. Military and Dependents (Adults & Seniors) $8.00 * Children (Ages 0-6) Free. The dam is open 9:00am to 6:00pm.
