The Hoover Dam is located on the border of Arizona and Nevada and spans Black Canyon to use the force of the Colorado River to supply hydroelectric power to areas of Nevada, Arizona and California. Interesting enough this is also a time zone border meaning one side of the east side of the dam (Arizona) is in the Mountain Time Zone and the west side (Nevada side) the Pacific Time Zone.

There are clocks to inform you which time zone you are located at if in doubt. The dam is indeed a monumental construction between the Colorado River and Lake Mead. Tourists can walk along the top of the dam and enjoy the view on both sides. Read more about Hoover Dam
