“This insider’s tour of the Hoover Dam is SO MUCH COOLER than I had expected. Taking the lift down into the depths of the dam to see the construction and working turbines, and learning about the amazing feat of human ingenuity that brought the Dam to completion was fascinating from start to finish. Added bonus, we got to stop on the bridge across from the dam for some cool panoramic photos, and stand on the state line between Nevada and Arizona!”
