A mind-blowing, man-made phenomenon, the Hoover Dam can be an overwhelming destination to experience, but the history here makes it worth the trip. An important supplier of hydroelectric power, the dam also provides flood control for the Colorado River. This day trip from the city of Las Vegas is filled with awe-inspiring sights and terrific learning opportunities. Photo credit: Paul Excoff
