Is the Hoover Dam worth seeing?
We sure think so! There's a reason this modern engineering marvel attracts more than 1 million visitors every year. The Hoover Dam is a 726-feet tall concrete gravity-arch dam. It holds back the Colorado River, is responsible for one of the largest man-made bodies of water in the world, and provides power to three separate states.
As if that weren't enough, the Hoover Dam is also classified as a National Historic Landmark. When the colossal dam was built in the 1930's, it came to symbolize the power of American workers during the depths of the Great Depression.
Papillon offers aerial helicopter tours over the Hoover Dam and guided tours through the interior.
