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.
Kick off your visit on the 17th (Tue): pause for some photo ops at Winged Figures of the Republic Statues, then see human ingenuity at work at Hoover Dam, then play a few rounds at Boulder Creek Golf Club, and finally identify plant and animal life at Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Keep things going the next day: kick back and relax at Willow Beach, see a world frozen in time at Nelson Ghost Town, and then get a dose of the wild on Eldorado Canyon Mine Tours.

For traveler tips, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Boulder City trip planner.

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Boulder City. Expect a daytime high around 68°F in November, and nighttime lows around 46°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Washington DC.

The capital of the United States, the District of Columbia contains the lion's share of the country's most treasured monuments, memorials, and public museums.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Capitol Hill and Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Take a break from the city and head to Great Falls Park and U.S. National Arboretum. The adventure continues: ponder the world of politics at Smithsonian Institution Building, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of African American History and Culture, explore the world behind art at Renwick Gallery, and contemplate the long history of Old Town.
