The dam is a National Historic Landmark and has been rated by the American Society of Civil Engineers as one of America's Seven Modern Civil Engineering Wonders.

Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce

Trying to describe Las Vegas in a few hundred words is a formidable task. Should the focus be on the city's mystic qualities - the dazzling lights and glittering resorts where more than 35 million pleasure-seeking tourists wager millions of dollars every year? Or should one look beyond the myth, at a southwestern metropolitan area that is home to 1.4 million people - a place with schools, parks, grocery stores, and quiet neighborhoods populated by people from every state in the union?
