Lake Mead is kind of imitating dam. The dam’s lake is the largest man-made body of water in the USA. It is 700 miles (1,120 km) of shoreline boast forests, canyons, and flower-rich meadows; its waters abound with fish. Boulder Beach offers the best swimming. The lake’s shores come to colorful life from the deck of a boat. You’ll see sandy beaches and rocks of every hue. There’s wildlife, too – look out for burros, jack rabbits, lizards, and the occasional bighorn sheep. It is kind of Lake Mead Cruises.
Before you leave Las Vegas, stock up on beverages and mouthwatering sandwiches at Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop (324 W. Sahara) to have as a picnic later on a Lake Mead beach. Take a cruise that does not include meals: it will be cheaper and give you more time to take in the surroundings. Drive along the west shore of Lake Mead on highways 166 and 167, to access the Valley of Fire and Lost City Museum.
In other side, you also can take the Black Canyon River Raft Trips. In here, it is because the Colorado River flows lazily below the dam, so that rafting is pleasant rather than of the white-knuckle variety. The trip takes a little more than three hours to make the 12-mile (19-km) trip to Willow Beach. Look out for petroglyphs carved in the rock, and ringbolts: in the days before the dam these were used to winch steam boats through Ringbolt Rapids. It will take a long time of holiday, because there are many interesting places there.
