Boulder City Vacations

United States
Boulder City is primarily known as the site of the Hoover Dam, which is also its main attraction. The city was actually built to accommodate the Depression-era workers constructing the dam, and today visitors can check out a museum dedicated to this chapter in America's history.

Boulder City is just a half-hour's drive or less from the Las Vegas strip, and worth going to, if only for Lake Mead and Hoover Dam.

Don't miss this little town when you visit Las Vegas. Just 20 minutes from The Strip and you'll forget you're anywhere near Sin City. More like Mayberry in the desert. Don't miss historic downtown's shops and restaurants - or the GREAT Boulder Dam Hotel and Museum.

A definitely HOT trip! Witnessed a major engineering construction feat by thousands of workers. Enjoyed the Grand view of the Dam!
