…the Hoover Dam. Only about a 45 minute drive outside of Las Vegas, the Hoover Dam is another easy daytrip if you’re visiting the city.
We opted for the full tour, and I was amazed @ at the sheer size of the dam o_O! Not that I thought it would be small, but it doesn’t really sink in until you are standing right in front of it. The story behind it is also very interesting…you can read about it here.
