On our drive towards Hoover Dam there is an opportunity to stop at Ethel Ms Chocolate factory. Along the drive you will here stories about how the dam and a whole new town were built for this massive project. After visiting the dam and checking out the incredible views from the ByPass Bridge we drive back to the Strip a different way and share stories of what is was like when the Mob came to Vegas.
To start this tour, just drive south along Las Vegas Blvd. We will suggest a photo stop at the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, and then we turn towards the dam. GyPSy will give you the directions you need to follow the tour route.
