Situated not too far from the Hoover Dam, the city has come to be a popular stop for those looking to check out the engineering landmark while also enjoying a restful and relaxing stay in a historic town. And given that it’s about a half hour from Las Vegas, Boulder City is also a great choice for those who may want to visit the iconic strip but stay just outside of it.
As far as activities, there is something for outdoor enthusiasts, foodies, and history buffs alike here. The Hoover Dam of course is a huge draw. The city also houses a museum dedicated to its creation. There is plenty of outdoor adventure to be had in Boulder City as well. From mountain biking, to kayaking in the nearby Colorado River, you can most definitely spend the day enjoying nature.
