Hoover Dam Bypass
This is a unique trip that you can take. If you are in Henderson, or even in Las Vegas, you can get there in under an hour. When you arrive, you will have to turn around on the freeway so that you can take the exit into this attraction. You will be able to park on the left, in a parking lot that is tiered.

You can check out the incredibly tall Stratosphere, Circus Circus, the Flamingo and the Tropicana.
