Seven Magic Mountains

An impressive desert art installation by Ugo Rondinone, this piece features seven painted boulder totems that stand 35 feet high. This beloved structure in the desert is a top Instagrammable location, so take epic photos and walk among these towering colorful boulders.

Historic Boulder City

Founded to house workers during the construction of the Hoover Dam, the town's name comes from the nearby Boulder Canyon. It's now become Nevada's largest entry on historic sites with over 500 buildings listed.

Hemingway Park & Desert Bighorn Sheep

A city park with views of Lake Mead, it's famous for its large population of the desert bighorn sheep. This subspecies of bighorn sheep is native to this region of the US.

Lake Mead Panoramic Lookout

Enjoy a short stop to take in the magnitude and views of Lake Mead, which is largest reservoir in the United States. Lake Mead is fed by the Colorado River and is worth the stop to view the incredible Hoover Dam.

Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge

Opened in 2010, this bypass bridge is an engineering marvel all on its own. It connects the canyon and provides an impressive birds eye view of the Hoover Dam, a thousand feet below. This provides traffic an alternate route to cross over the dam, leaving pedestrians free to roam the top of the dam without cars.

Cross the Hoover Dam

The Hoover Dam was built between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression. Your expert guide will tell you all about the history, construction, why the Hoover Dam is famous, and its original name.

This tour taught me SO MUCH about the Hoover Dam and surrounding areas! The guide was extremely knowledgable, and showed us a bunch of cool things about all the stops we would not have seen otherwise! Not only does this tour stop at the Hoover Dam, but it also stops at Hemenway Park, where you can spot Bighorn Sheep in the wild! It also stops several times for photo ops as well. Possibly the best part, it picks you up from your hotel so you don't have to figure out where to meet them! Thank you Tour Guy for the great experience!
