Roadtrip To Hoover Dam & The Roadhouse Club
Our road trip route will run from Death Valley to Las Vegas in 5 days, but one or two days in Vegas at the beginning and end of the trip will round off the week. We're going to burn a lot of calories today, so we'll treat ourselves to breakfast at the Southwest Diner. We tried, but could not get any food delivered. Being from Los Angeles, food delivery is rapidly becoming a way of life. It is a symbolic building, so don't forget it, and if you feel like it, you can walk to the bridge over the dam. It is a great place to stop for a few minutes and walk to read the interpretative signs and enjoy the magnificent view of this technical miracle. Expect to do this a few times, especially if you expect to be there after you were there for a cool time, as we had, but not too often. After visiting Lake Mead and leaving Hoover Dam, we drove to Las Vegas for the last two nights of our road trip and ended our sightseeing adventure with a sunset over the Las Vegas Strip. Can you believe we were able to stay in a fantastic hotel on the Las Nevada Strip for just $50 a night, the cheapest night we had on our entire Route 66 trip? We did a fantastic Grand Canyon tour in Las Angeles and then a great trip to Hoover Dam.
Road Trip Grand Canyon
While Las Vegas offers plenty of entertainment, a trip to Lake Mead National Recreation Area gives us a taste of the wilder side. With the largest lake in the United States and one of the largest dams in the world, this utopia is home to more than 1,000 acres of hiking, biking, camping, fishing, and camping. On your Grand Canyon road trip, you have the option of adding Hoover Dam to your start, but for our road trips, we had no choice but to add it to our Hoover Dam. Guided Dam Tour extends your visit to the behind-the-scenes side of Hoover Dam, and that's something you need to do every day. If you plan to do so, you need to reserve your tickets and get here on time to make sure you get your ticket. Driving around the causeway is pretty cool, even if you take the tour and won't stand around for long. If you get there early enough, join the $30 Hoover Dam tour, which is a guided tour, and if you have a nice view of the dam from here and have access to a small museum full of information, it's worth $8. The tour allows you to visit an exclusive part of a dam and visit it and its surroundings. I first thought about visiting Hoover Dam after finding out that we were going to drive right past the dam on the route my sister and I were going to take on a road trip in the summer.
Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge
The highway passes directly by Hoover Dam and pushes up traffic, but a bypass bridge was opened in 2010 to give it a break. I headed for the bypass and went round the other side, where I could marvel at the technical miracle from the side of the road, only a few hundred meters away. So we said goodbye to our historic mother road and headed for the ticked-off states. I managed to visit 6 countries on my first visit to the USA, not bad, but I am quite satisfied with the sixth. Hoover Dam is not only the final stop on our Arizona road trip but also one of the most popular tourist destinations throughout the state of Arizona. It is located about 25 miles from Las Vegas and is located on Highway 93, making Hoover Dam quite easy to reach. If you want to spend a few days celebrating the 50th anniversary of Hoover Dam and the 100th anniversary of its construction, this is the place to do it. Driving through Arizona and the southwestern United States is not as easy as driving through many other states, but it is a well-traveled route with all the amenities a traveler might need. This incredible state offers both natural beauty and historical diversity, and Las Vegas invites you to take a trip to one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States. Instead of just visiting the countless casinos on the Strip, you can simply make a quick trip to the city to see for yourself what it has to offer. Here we outline our itinerary and include a few bonus places to visit during your trip to Las Vegas. This place is one hour outside of Las Vegas, but can easily be turned into an overnight stop on the way home. Once you see Lake Mead, you're not far from the Grand Canyon on your road trip. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, it is the largest lake in the United States and one of the largest in the world in terms of volume.
