Hoover Dam Mercantile
Hello from the Hoover Dam (aka Boulder Dam for you old timers). Just a couple of reminders, we will be closed for Thanksgiving and so will the Visitor Center and the parking garage. The day after is going to be "dam" busy and so is Saturday and Sunday. Plan to come early if at all possible . . . during the holidays the parking garage will get full and have to close and there is not much other "dam" parking. When it does close, it takes about 20 to 30 minutes to clear out enough cars to reopen. Also, if you do come down on Thanksgiving (you won't be alone, lots of people do) the only parking is on the Arizona side of the dam. Bring your walking shoes. The weather may be "dam" inclement so come prepared for wind and possible rain. One last thing, we are blessed to have our little gift shop here at Hoover Dam and are thankful to all of you "dam" tourist that come out our way. Have a wonderful holiday and be safe.
