Destination guide

Bolder vacationers are Boulder vacationers

Think this part of the world is all about bright lights, shows, and casinos? Think again. A half-hour drive from the glitz of Las Vegas, a Boulder City vacation rental will give you a whole different impression of Nevada. It's a place where you'll be itching to get into the outdoors, whether you're fishing in Lake Mead, hiking the trails, or going googly-eyed as you make your way along the top of the totally iconic Hoover Dam. And at the end of the day you can come back to a vibrant, cultural, and self-confident city where there's always something going on.

Things to do

A Boulder City vacation ain't no gamble

There's one big attraction in Boulder City. And by big, we mean BIG. The Hoover Dam is one of the most legendary sights in the U.S., and in fact it's the reason Boulder City even exists. Once you've got your eyes out on stalks, you can follow it up with a visit to the Nevada Southern Railroad Museum. And if you're not into that famous Nevada casino culture, then you've hit the jackpot with a Boulder City vacation rental. There's no gambling here. On the other hand, the tables are never far off if you're that way inclined.


The city where no one wants to stay indoors

Obviously you'll have sightseeing at the Hoover Dam on your agenda, but you'll soon realize that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to your Boulder City vacation rental. Covering 1.5 million acres, Lake Mead National Recreation Area is a playground for outdoor-lovers. Whether you're into boating, fishing, or watersports, you'll get your aquatic fix in the waters of Lake Mead or Lake Mohave. And if you prefer to keep your feet dry, then you can hike the mountains and canyons, or take a scenic drive through some of Nevada's most epic landscapes.


Set fire to your umbrella

Don't like rain? Congratulations, you've come to one of the driest places in the States. Boulder City has a desert climate, with precious little precipitation and short, mild winters. You'll still find some snow up in the mountains if you go looking hard enough, but it doesn't freeze very often in Boulder City, even during the coldest months of the year. The flipside is that those seemingly endless summers can get hot (like, broiler-hot), so a dip in Lake Mead is going to be high up on the agenda for your Boulder City vacation rental.

Natural features

Where the only thing bigger than the dam is everything else

Try and get your head round this: the Hoover Dam was such a massive project in its day that they realized they'd have to build a whole city just to provide for the workforce. Enter Boulder City, built in 1931, and once home to thousands of workers. The dam's still a dominant feature of the landscape, and its creation also brought about the existence of Lake Mead, the biggest reservoir in the United States. Look a little further, and the surrounding country's even more awesome. Think mountains, canyons, and valleys, all just waiting to be explored.
