Visit The Hoover Dam:
A short drive away from the city lights, you will marvel at Hoover Dam. Drive over the dam and have several photo-taking opportunities to add to your scrap book. Hoover Dam is a testimony to a country's ability to construct monolithic projects in the midst of adverse conditions. Built during the Depression; thousands of men and their families came to Black Canyon to tame the Colorado River. It took less than five years, in a harsh and barren land, to build the largest dam of its time. Now, years later, Hoover Dam still stands as a world-renowned structure.
