Hoover Dam Bypass, Las Vegas

4.4
#2 of 12 in Nature in Las Vegas
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.

  • So much for warm weather not being Hoover dam, a dam, impressive size, although the multi-storey car park on weekdays was completely full, they drove a couple of hours away, we like to see to be on our way

  • The view is amazing, but watch out for the gusty wind and your hat. Can be very busy on the weekends, so be patient!  more »
  • This was a new one for us, as the new bridge had not yet been built when we first toured the dam 20 years ago. It is really awesome and gives a great view / picture spot of the dam.  more »
