Hoover Dam – distance from Downtowner Boutique Hotel – 36.8 mi.

Roughly 3,000 people visit this 726 ft. tall architectural marvel every day of the year. Hoover dam was constructed during the Great Depression between 1931 and 1936 for flood control, the production of electricity, and to provide water for irrigation purposes. Furthermore, you can take in stunning views of the Black Canyon, Colorado River, and Lake Mead as well as the dam from the overlook.

Lake Mead – distance from Downtowner Boutique Hotel – 32 mi.

If you want to enjoy the sunshine and water while working on your tan, a drive to Lake Mead makes for an ideal day trip. This man-made lake is the perfect year-round venue for boating, hiking, jet, skiing, and swimming. Plus, there’s 820 miles of shoreline for lounging around and numerous shaded spots for picnics. You’ll also be treated to some astounding views of bighorn sheep, Joshua trees, lava hills, and red sandstone rocks.

Whether you want to tackle a long hike or a quick joint through nature, Red Rock Canyon offers 19 hiking trails ranging from relatively easy to difficult.

Valley of Fire – distance from Downtowner Boutique Hotel – 46.1 mi.

Situated northeast of Las Vegas and just 6 miles from Lake Mead is The Valley of Fire, Nevada’s oldest state park.
