Hoover Dam, Lake Mead & Lost City Museum- 1 Day Experience

Learn about Hoover Dam, a 20th century engineering masterpiece. Constructed during the Great Depression, the project known as Boulder Dam was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.

Part of the Colorado River system, Hoover Dam impounded water creating Lake Mead, the largest man-made reservoir in the United States. Lake Mead supplies communities in Southern California, Arizona and Southern Nevada with water for municipal, industrial and agriculture use. Hydro-electric power, and water recreation activities are secondary benefits.

Designated a National Historic Landmark, the Dam is rated by the American Society of Civil Engineers as one of America’s Seven Modern Civil Engineering Wonders.
