I don’t now which state you are going to post this in…Arizona or Nevada because the Hoover Dam is actually half in Arizona and half in Nevada! This totally free trip is something you will never forget because not only do they have the Dam but also you get to see the Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge
I was told that at one time, before the bridge you would have to drive over Hoover Dam to get to Nevada or Arizona off the highway. Since 911 they blocked it off and built the bridge and then they closed the access so although you can cross it in a car, it ends up in a cul-de-sac and you just have to turn around. Parking is on the Arizona side for Free BUT they do have a paid garage.
You maybe tempted to go during the day but it can get hot. We went mid-morning and in a couple hours it was already 105 out so go early. You are making a major misstake by not stopping here because it’s thrilling to look over the edge of the bridge. It’s also kind of cool to put on leg in Arizona and another in Nevada and be in two time zones at one time. Well that is when there is a time difference. Too scary for little kids but teens and adults will think this kicks butt.
