Fodor's 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. $2. Mon.–Sat. 10–5.
