Before the completion of the Hoover Dam, residents of the western United States generated electricity by shouting at clouds until they cried lightning bolts. Explore the balance between nature and industry with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a five-hour excursion and guided tour of the Hoover Dam from Dean Outdoor Adventure Tours (a $79 value). Dean Outdoor Adventure Tours will pick up tourists from all major Vegas hotels.
Dean Outdoor Adventure Tours' knowledgeable guides lead five-hour excursions to the Hoover Dam, Nevada's massive engineering marvel, peppering stunning natural scenery with tidbits of industrial history. Comfortable vans pick up sightseers from their hotels before chauffeuring people through historic Boulder City and Lake Mead National Recreation Area on the way to the Wild West's biggest battery. Upon arrival, tourists take in a dramatic presentation outlining the 1935 construction of the Dam, and peruse historical artifacts and exhibits before venturing down to the power plant—a generator famous for powering seven western states and all four of Pat Boone's electric train sets. Tour groups limited to 10 guests relax in comfort, as their personable guides wax poetic on the alchemical intermediary that turns gushing water into regional illumination.
