Hoover Dam Tour Major Highlights
Las Vegas Strip: Pink Adventure Tours Las Vegas picks guests up from most hotels located along the Las Vegas Strip. As you motor along this world-famous stretch of road on your way out of town, you’re likely to have some great photo opportunities—especially if you are on the day’s earlier tour, when the morning light can hit the Strip in amazing ways.
Lake Mead: Lake Mead is a beautiful man-made lake that was created when Hoover Dam was constructed on the Colorado River. When it is filled to capacity, it is the largest water reservoir in the entire United States. Lake Mead is also the centerpiece of the remarkable Lake Mead National Recreation Area, a 1.5-million-acre area of land protected by the National Park Service.
Boulder Dam Museum: Located in the historic Boulder Dam Hotel—which was built in 1933 to house visitors to the Hoover Dam construction site—the Boulder Dam Museum presents a variety of exhibits and artifacts chronicling the building of the Hoover Dam.
Hoover Dam: Completed in 1936, the Hoover Dam remains one of the great engineering marvels of the world. At over 700 feet tall, it is a remarkable achievement, an unforgettable sight, and the centerpiece of this terrific tour.
Michael O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Bridge: On the tour, you’ll be able to take a brief walk along this 900-foot-tall concrete-arch bridge, which is the highest of its kind in the world. From this perspective, you’ll have a spectacular view of the Hoover Dam—it’ll make for some can’t-miss photo ops!
Is the Pink Jeep Hoover Dam Tour for You?
For those visitors to Las Vegas who want to explore Hoover Dam while catching a glimpse of Lake Mead, but don’t have the ability to travel outside of the Strip themselves—or just prefer the experience of a guided tour—the Pink Adventure Tours Las Vegas Hoover Dam Tour is a pretty good option.
