    Drive yourself or go by bus

    We hired a car for a couple of days so drove to the Hoover Dam. There is a multi storey car park for visitors and the cost for parking was $5.
    However if you havent got transport or dont want to drive you can get tours from Las Vegas which includes stopping at Lake Mead and also includes the Dam tour and the price is about $45.

    Make a fly by

    Hoover Dam seen from a helicopter

    You can travel by bus or car.... We went here the first time by car but nothing beats a fly by in a helicopter.

    Thats what we did in the spring of 2004 as a part of our marriage in Vegas.

    We had put this of because of the cost many times but now we have done it, we both agree it's worth the money...

    We used Maverick Helicopters and where very satisfied.
