Drive the 5.6 km (3.5 m) Hoover Dam Bypass to see a massive concrete dam, travel the longest single-arch bridge in North America, and cross state lines. The highlight of the bypass is the Mike O’Callaghan - Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. Standing 260 m (840 ft) above the Colorado River, the bridge is the second highest in the United States. It offers fantastic views of the Hoover Dam, a Depression-era engineering wonder, and Lake Mead. If you are interested in learning about the dam’s history, stop and take a tour. Park in one of the nearby lots if you would like to walk the bridge and take photos. Continue to the middle to see the state line marker. For free parking, cross to the Arizona side.

Fun day touring the Hoover Dam and Bypass with Gypsy Guide Audio Tour from Las Vegas enroute to the Souther Rim of the Grand Canyon. Well worth the money to be entertained and educated on the sites..... more »
A marvel! Incredible feat! Before going to Hoover Dam stop in Boulder City and visit the Boulder City Inn where you go into the Hoover Dam Museum (free). That will give you lots of information on how the Hoover Dam was built. Also, I recommend eating at the wonderful Restaurant at the Inn. If you feel adventurous; take the Boulder City walking Tour which starts and ends at the Hotel. You will not be disappointed.
Super cool experience! Actually a lot more fun than I thought it would be. The views were breathtaking. The gift shop there isn't too bad either. I got a cute shirt that wasn't too expensive. Not a place I'd thought would be cool, but I really liked it 👍
