Located approximately 26 miles outside Las Vegas, Boulder City, Nevada, was founded in an effort to provide housing to those working on the Hoover Dam in the 1930s. The town has retained its quiet atmosphere and is known for being one of two cities in the entire state to still have a prohibition on gambling. It's also considered one of the best places in the U.S. to retire. Today, Boulder City offers adventurers a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city and a chance to see the beautiful landscape Nevada has to offer.
