Boulder City is known as the city that built Hoover Dam. Located approximately 20 miles from the glitter and excitement of Las Vegas, and just a few miles from Lake Mead National Recreation Area, the destination offers quality recreational activities such as mountain biking, hiking, golfing, kayaking, and skydiving. Explore history and culture in the walkable downtown district visiting quaint boutiques, antique shops, and dining alfresco at sidewalk cafes. Ride the historic Nevada Southern Railway, pedal yourself on rail bikes, and visit the Boulder Dam Museum. For the more unusual sites, check out Ton Devlin’s Monster Museum, Area 52, and Fisher Space Pen Co. There’s plenty to see and do in all-American Boulder City.
