Experience a change of pace in Historic Boulder City, "the city that built Hoover Dam". Tucked away between the awesome wonder of Hoover Dam, you'll find Boulder City; an unexpected oasis of cool grass, shade trees and open, friendly people.
The historic Boulder Dam Hotel once a stopping place for the celebrities and royalty in those early days now revitalized and home to the Chamber of Commerce, the Arts Council, the Hoover Dam Museum, fine boutiques and an excellent restaurant.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Boulder City has a fascinating history as the first "planned community" in America. It was built to provide shelter to thousands of workers on the Hoover Dam (then known as The Boulder Canyon Project). Held over from its early beginnings, there is still no gambling permitted in Boulder City, the only community in Nevada with that distinction. The well preserved Historic district provides a glimpse of the 1930's.
Stroll along the picturesque walkways offering unique shops, antique stores, and quaint restaurants. Our hotels and motels provide convenient access to Lake Mead, with adequate parking for boats and RV's, in addition to several RV parks. Boulder City's clean, green parks provide the opportunity for family picnics and activities and numerous community events.
Also available is an excellent, well maintained 18 hole golf course. The city offers a swimming pool, racquetball complex, lighted tennis courts, lush athletic fields and BMX bicycle track that gives year-round recreational pleasure. The first city airport in Nevada still operates here to take visitors on aerial tours of Hoover Dam as well as the Grand Canyon. And for those daredevils among us, sky diving is available here.
The construction of Hoover Dam tamed the mighty Colorado River and created Lake Mead, the world's deepest man-made lake area. Just a few minutes away is Lake Mead National Recreation Area, the gateway to year-round recreation: fishing, boating, hiking, mountain biking, sight-seeing, and camping. The lake provides a paddle wheeler for cruises around the lake and to Hoover Dam.
The Colorado River provides added recreational pleasures, including river raft trips; giving visitors a chance to see flora and fauna (including the state animal, the Bighorn sheep) up close and personal. The smooth water float provides lots of relaxation and time for photographs.
