Yesterday we visited Hoover Dam.
It was just a short drive from Las Vegas. It is on the border of Nevada and Arizona.
We drove through security and had a quick van search. There was no admission cost and we parked for free a short walking distance from the dam.
You can pay to park closer in a parking garage. You can also pay to go on a tour. We decided to just explore ourselves.
The dam is huge and is very interesting to see.
There are several signs along the way that share some of the history of when and how the dam was built.
We enjoyed the views and reading the history of Hoover Dam.
It was definitely worth the drive and time to go see.
