The Hoover Dam really is worth the trip. It is an impressive structure and will not disappoint. Our tour guide, Bob did a great job providing backstory and information that was both well-rounded and interesting. Walking the bridge was breathtaking. We did not catch the big-horned sheep, unfortunately, but it was still a cool view of Lake Mead. Go for the Seven Magic Mountain upgrade...very unique.
Absolutely beautiful
