Boulder Dam Hotel
Boulder Dam Hotel Review
Be sure to stop at the Dutch Colonial style Boulder Dam Hotel, built in 1933. On the National Register of Historic Places, the 20-room bed-and-breakfast once was a favorite getaway for notables, including the man who became Pope Pius XII and actors Will Rogers, Bette Davis, and Shirley Temple. It's still a point of pride for Boulder City and the heart of Downtown. The guest rooms have been remodeled to stay competitive but retain a historic feel.
Boulder City/Hoover Dam Museum. For its size this small museum inside the Boulder Dam Hotel is well done. It includes hands-on exhibits, oral histories, artifacts from the building of Hoover Dam, and a glimpse at what it was like for Great Depression-era families to pull up roots and settle in the rock and dust of the harsh Mojave Desert. 1305 Arizona Street, 89005. 702/294–1988. www.bcmha.org. $2. Mon.–Sat. 10–5.
