Home of Hoover Dam
A desert town with an interesting history, Boulder City was created by the United States government in 1931 to provide housing for workers building the Hoover Dam, a famous Depression-era project. Today, the surprisingly green city boasts a laid-back holiday atmosphere, plenty of shopping and dining opportunities, and several golf courses. Although just a half-hour drive from Las Vegas, you won't find any casinos here, as it is one of only two cities in Nevada to prohibit gambling. The city is a great starting point for a desert hike, a trip to nearby Lake Mead, or a tour of the historic Hoover Dam. Plan the details of your Boulder City holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use United States day trip planner.
