About the Hoover Dam
Dr. Christopher Khorsandi and his staff recommend the Hoover Dam to patients who enjoy learning about historical landmarks. Almost 80 years old, the Hoover Dam was the largest construction project of its time. It was designed to bring nearby states into an agreement about water allocations. Standing taller than 725 feet above the Colorado River, it is the highest concrete dam in the Western Hemisphere. Open every day of the year (except for Thanksgiving and Christmas), the Hoover Dam attracts millions of visitors from around the world. Visit http://www.usbr.gov/lc/hooverdam/ for more information.
