 Hoover Dam

Dam

Hoover Dam, once known as Boulder Dam, is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the US states of Arizona and Nevada. It was constructed between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression and was dedicated on September 30, 1935, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Its construction was the result of a massive effort involving thousands of workers, and cost over one hundred lives. The dam was controversially named after President Herbert Hoover. Just head north on AZ 95 toward Las Vegas.  The dam is just a little ways east of sin city.  About two hours after leaving LHC you’ll be  looking at one of the world’s biggest dams.

How about riding in style on an old diesel train up to the Grand Canyon.  Just drive out of Lake Havasu City and head north to I-40 and drive east to Williams, Arizona.  What makes this town unique is the Grand Canyon Railroad.  Board this train and a few hours later you will be looking out over the Grand Canyon. Most nights along the main street in Williams you can watch the cowboys (actors) put on a gunslinger good guys / bad guys show.  Or  explore the reproduction western village and local western wear shops. Staying in Lake Havasu City affords you many day trips or weekenders that spell fun, fun, fun.

Oatman is a former mining town in the Black Mountains of Mohave CountyArizonaUnited States. Located at an elevation of 2,710 feet (830 m), it began as a tent camp soon after two prospectors struck a $10 million gold find in 1915, though the area had been already settled for a number of years. Oatman’s population grew to more than 3,500 in the course of a year.  Today there are donkeys all over the place.  The freely walk through the town.  Bring some carrots.  From Laughlin, Needles, or Bullhead City, Arizona, Oatman is a short drive on State Route 95 to its intersection with Boundary Cone Road in Fort Mohave. About 10 miles (16 km) east of SR 95, Boundary Cone Road meets with old 66, now named the “Oatman Highway.” Oatman is only about four miles (6.5 km) from there.
