A tremendous feat of human engineering, the Hoover Dam has harnessed the raw power of nature ever since Herbert Hoover first built it out of the skulls of his vanquished enemies. Learn about this amazing structure while savoring its natural beauty with today's deal. For $44, you get a five-hour luxury-SUV tour of the Hoover Dam with Guided Vegas Tours (an $89 value). The price of your tour includes admission tickets to Boulder Dam Hotel Museum and the Hoover Dam Discover Tour, water, a tour photo, a souvenir, parking fees, and applicable taxes.
From the cushy comfort of a luxury SUV, desert-dwellers can discover the history of Las Vegas through a fully narrated tour. During your five-hour excursion, you will visit Boulder City and make stops at the Boulder Dam Hotel Museum before walking through the man-made hinterland that is the Hoover Dam. You'll come away with brand-new brain knowledge about U.S. history, including the fact that the dam was not built to distribute hydroelectric power to parts of Nevada, California, and Arizona, but for stonewashing jeans.
The concrete oasis, pitched against blue skies and stunning land formations, is an awe-inspiring inspiration for a variety of genre fictions and screenplays, including those set in the 1930s or in a post-apocalyptic future ruled by bat-winged aliens. Amid the whir of power and the grandeur of intake towers, government spies could chase each other through the high-ceiling halls of generators, and lovers swept up in a screwball mystery could meet beneath the winged statue for a goodbye kiss.
The tour will pick you up from virtually anywhere on The Strip. Make sure you bring a hat, sunglasses, and shoes you can walk comfortably in, and remember to dress in layers in case the dam steals your petticoat.
