Now any Hoover Dam Tour worth its salt will travel through Boulder City and at least pass by the charming and historical Boulder Dam Hotel.
The Boulder Dam Hotel was designed in the Colonial Revival style by architect Henry Smith. It is listed on the United States National Register of Historic Places. It The hotel was built to accommodate official visitors, celebrities and tourists during the building of Boulder Dam, now called Hoover Dam.
The Boulder City Museum and Historical Association is located in the hotel. Along with it are boutique shops and 22 rooms available for rent.
This is one of the reason I always tell my guests to keep their cameras out. On the Hoover Dam tour, you will see more than just the Dam…. You see American history and some great architecture built in the middle of nowhere.
