Fun filled roundtrip tour to Las Vegas, Hoover Dam and Lake Mead.

Day 1

Today we head through the Mojave Desert to the fabulous Las Vegas, we stop at the Outlets of Barstow for some shopping, lunch and souvenirs.  After lunch we pass by the famous Ivanpah Solar Plant, the plant has a gross capacity of 392 megawatts (MW).  It deploys 173,500 heliostats, each with two mirrors focusing solar energy on boilers located on three centralized solar power towers. Amazing. We stop along the way for lunch.

We stop at the Seven Magic Mountains in Jane, NV for foto opportunities, These Magic Mountains were created by the Swiss artist Ugo Nordinone. Seven pillars of huge, neon-hued boulders stretch up to the sky. They’re the only thing for miles around, “creative expression of human presence in the desert.”

We then continue to the Fabulous Las Vegas.  We end our tour at the renowned Excalibur Hotel and for those who want to head out on their own, we recommend checking out the main attractions on foot, the beautiful fountains at the Bellagio, the amazing Caesars Palace, the Venetian with the gondolas and so on, or you can book a show and enjoy any of the Cirque de Soleil and many other attractions.  Your Tour Guide can assist you in planning your evening.

 

Day 2

We head out early to the Hoover Dam and Colorado River, we walk across the Hoover Dam over the Mike O’Callaghan and Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge into the state of Arizona.  Spectacular.  Views of the Colorado River and Lake Mead, which was created through the construction of the Dam between 1931 and 1935, all features were completed by 1936.  What an amazing morning.

From here we head back to Los Angeles with a stop at the Primm Outlets for lunch.
