When visiting the Hooverdam...
When visiting the Hooverdam your not allowed to take items with you that won't fit through the X-Ray scanner. The actual size is posted all around the dam also nearby the elevators if you park at the Nevada side. A back pack won't be allowed. Larger objects have to be brought down using the large cranes located at the Nevada site of the dam.
Parking Fee at the Hoover Dam Visitor Center
I was surprised to pay for parking at the Hoover Dam Visitor Center, the current parking fee is advertised as $7.
Unique Suggestions: I recognize that they built a wonderful, nice covered parking structure, so this fee is to help recover their costs. I was just not expecting this fee since I had arrived late on a Sunday afternoon and missed the last tour of the day.
Fun Alternatives: If you want free parking, you need to drive across the dam to the Arizona side - there are a couple of parking lots- but bring your walking shoes it is quite a distance to the visitor center.
