Take A Day Trip From Vegas
While you may not think that any trip to Vegas needs to be livelier, you will find that planning a daytrip from the city will certainly add some interest. After you see the majestic Grand Canyon, you will have plenty of stories and pictures to share with friends and family on Facebook and Instagram.
Just take one of the luxury bus tours from Las Vegas by way of a local company, such as Grand Canyon Destinations. Tour packages are featured to the West Rim of the canyon (part of tribal land) and the South Rim, part of Grand Canyon National Park. Passengers on either trip stop off for a short time at Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam.
Tours From Las Vegas To The Hoover Dam
You can also choose to take one of the short tours from Las Vegas to Lake Mead and Hoover Dam as well. A Hoover Dam express bus tour can be taken, with pick-up beginning between 8:00 and 9:00 AM in the morning. During this tour, you can stop at an overlook, and snap pictures of the Colorado River and the dam. You will also walk the Memorial Bridge so you can take advantage of more picture-taking opportunities.
Visitors on the Hoover Dam Express Bus Tour also visit the Lake Mead Visitor Center. At the center, you can buy a book or nature gift, or stroll through the adjacent cactus garden. Guests can also watch a video explaining more about the flora and fauna of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Whether you choose to see only Hoover Dam and Lake Mead or take a daylong trip to the Grand Canyon, you will be rewarded with some amazing scenery.
