Visiting Hoover Dam and Las Vegas

The last leg of our almost four-week vacation has taken us to Hoover Dam and Las Vegas.  Hoover Dam is an incredible engineering feat.  We booked the tour through a website that picked us up at our Las Vegas hotel but I think we overpaid for that. We could have bought the ticket at Hoover Dam for much cheaper.  The tour itself was not mind-blowing but it was interesting.  Here are some pictures we took during the tour.

This was my first visit to Las Vegas.  We arrived at night and it looks totally different at night than during the day. It was packed, I was surprised at how many people were visiting in early April.  We saw the Criss Angel show, he puts on a really good magic show.
