Are you ready for the ultimate road trip? Take a drive through two of America’s greatest natural wonders, the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. This route will give you a unique perspective on both of these incredible locations. From the stunning views to historic sites, this is an experience you won’t want to miss!


The Hoover Dam & Lake Mead

The first stop on your road trip should be the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. The dam is located between Nevada and Arizona, so you can start in either state depending on your preference. Once here, take some time to explore the dam itself. Not only is it perched atop a mountain ridge overlooking Lake Mead, but it also has some interesting history as well. Be sure to check out the plaque that lists all those who worked on its construction and learn more about its importance during the Great Depression. After exploring the dam, head over to Lake Mead for some outdoor activities like fishing or hiking along its shoreline.


Grand Canyon National Park

Next up is Grand Canyon National Park! This stunning natural wonder stretches across 277 miles of Arizona landscape, providing visitors with breathtaking views from various overlooks throughout the park. Start by driving down South Rim Drive for a magnificent look at some of its most popular attractions such as Bright Angel Trail and Yavapai Point. Then head down North Rim Drive for an even more unique view of this majestic site from 8200 feet above sea level!

Finally, make sure not to miss out on Mather Point - one of the most photographed spots in all of Grand Canyon National Park due to its sweeping views of both rims at once!


From breathtaking views to historic sites like Hoover Dam itself, this road trip will give you a memory that will last a lifetime. So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and get ready for adventure!
