If you’re looking to switch up your Las Vegas experience with a quick day trip, the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead are just a quick drive away from the city and offer a refreshing getaway from the activity on the Strip. Gray Line provides exciting guided tours to Hoover Dam and Lake Mead that will fit both your schedule and your budget.
Hoover Dam is one of the most impressive man-made engineering feats in the world. As one of the biggest and most successful government projects of its time, the project was actually completed on time and under budget during the Great Depression… something that seems unheard of by today’s standards! To this day, Hoover Dam provides water and hydroelectric power to the entire southwest region of the United States. Visiting Hoover Dam is an immersive and in-depth look into this spectacular landmark.
Formed by the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead is one of the largest reservoirs in the United States. A shockingly beautiful body of fresh water right in the middle of the desert, locals and tourists alike visit this oasis for fun water sports, camping, and to escape the Las Vegas heat. A relaxing cruise on the Desert Princess paddlewheel boat is one of our most popular tour requests!
Whether you’d like like to spend the whole day enjoying Hoover Dam and Lake Mead or take just a quick express tour, Gray Line offers a selection of convenient tour packages so you can choose which option works best for you.
