I've been, before they built the bridge. It was not long after 9/11/2001 so the tour was not available. Pretty cool, but I wish I could have taken the tour.

I've lived in Vegas for 6 years and still have never stopped to take pictures or anything. I've driven over it a few times before the bridge was built though...one day I'll make it down there and stop. A lot of people say it's pretty cool though and there's always a crowd there

I took the tour but it was during the construction of the bridge. As the tour goes I wanted to see more of the inside but for security/safety they dont allow you to see most of the cool stuff.

I did the tour and really enjoyed it. Cool diarama showing the waterways feeding from Colorado to California.

I suggest you get there as early as possible though, we got there early and it wasn't crowded but by the time we left it was packed.

Im from Vegas and we went to go see the new bridge last year and walk through and we didnt like all the tourists, so we didnt do the tour. plus it is REALLY hot on that bridge and on the dam.

but the new bridge is way sweet

Did the tour and would highly recommend it. If I could do it again I would and this time I would buy the Dvd because they throw so much info at you it's hard to remember all the interesting details. One crazy fact was something to the effect of the first guy to die and the last guy to die were father and son and on the same day so many years apart. Watching the videos of them building that makes me realize we are a bunch of p***ies today.
