Hoover Dam (Boulder City, NV)
The Hoover Dam, located on the border between Nevada and Arizona, is one of the most impressive feats of engineering in the United States. The dam provides hydroelectric power to much of the southwestern part of the country, including Los Angeles, and the reservoir it created, Lake Mead, supplies water to Southern California and Nevada. Only 30 miles from Las Vegas, the Hoover Dam makes an excellent day trip.
