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 your holiday in Boulder City and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our United States trip maker site.
