Larger than the Great Pyramid of Giza, the engineering marvel that is the Hoover Dam has wowed visitors since its construction in the 1930s. Today, there are various ways to view the immense wonder: tours outside and inside the dam, a drive on the spectacular new four-lane highway bridge arching across the Colorado River, or even on a paddle craft tour in the river below.
Smith Center for the Performing Arts
Ready to experience the best and brightest in first-rate programming, right in downtown Las Vegas? Enjoy the Smith Center, a $470 million performing arts complex that celebrates artistic excellence, education, and culture from around the world. Serving as the home for the Las Vegas Philharmonic and Nevada Ballet Theatre, the center was designed to echo the 1930s art deco style of the Hoover Dam. But that style doesn’t tell the whole story—this modern facility, opened in 2012, is the first performing arts center in the U.S. to be Gold LEED certified.
What was once the original water source for Las Vegas is today the premier site to explore the valley’s vibrant natural history. The Springs Preserve features 180 acres of interactive science and nature exhibits, colorful botanical gardens, hiking, trails, and live animal shows—and it’s only three miles from downtown.
And much, much more!
Las Vegas hosts major events in college basketball, motorsports, and rodeo, as well as numerous cultural events and festivals for the whole family.
