Why You Shouldn’t Miss This

A concrete arch-gravity dam, Hoover Dam was built in 1936 for hydroelectric power generation, controlling floods and providing irrigation water. It was the largest structure ever built during the time of its construction and was a massive undertaking, with thousands of workers involved. Currently, it is the 34th largest hydroelectric power station in the world. A testament to the engineering and architectural prowess of the United States, it is currently one of the most popular tourist attractions in the United States. With 17 turbines generating power, the Hoover Dam produces an astounding 2074 megawatts of electric power.

The Hoover Dam is protected against over-topping by the presence of two spillways. The Arizona Spillway is 50 feet in diameter and can handle an astonishing 200,000 cubic feet of water per second (cfs). To put it into perspective, the flow of water at the Niagara falls is also approximately 200,000 cfs.

Your Experience

A courtesy pick up from your hotel is included in the ticket. There are two variants, the Bus tour, and SUV tour. Everything apart from the mode of transport is the same for each option.

Visible from nearly 15 miles away, the sheer size of this concrete structure is guaranteed to blow you away. The fact that it was built in the 1930’s is unbelievable. Do not bring along any suitcases or large bags, as Hoover Dam security will not let you take it inside. You can see the generators up close, and the dam continues to provide power to several parts of California, Nevada, and Arizona. Although built for functionality, there are Gothic inspired balustrades and several eagle statues adorning the exterior. The popular Art Deco style of architecture can be seen throughout this structure, with sculptured turrets rising from the face of the dam.

Sculptures created by the eminent sculptor, Oskar Hansen can be viewed in and around the dam. You can also see the memorial designed by Hansen, dedicated to the workers who died during the construction of the dam. A lot of climbing and walking is involved, but we have you covered with an unlimited bottled water. This enormous reservoir in the middle of the desert makes for an unusual, yet eye-catching sight.
