Smith Center for the Performing Arts

Ready to experience the best and brightest in first-rate programming, right in downtown Las Vegas? Enjoy the Smith Center, a $470 million performing arts complex that celebrates artistic excellence, education, and culture from around the world. Serving as the home for the Las Vegas Philharmonic and Nevada Ballet Theatre, the center was designed to echo the 1930s art deco style of the Hoover Dam. But that style doesn’t tell the whole story—this modern facility, opened in 2012, is the first performing arts center in the U.S. to be Gold LEED certified.

Hoover Dam

Larger than the Great Pyramid of Giza, the engineering marvel that is the Hoover Dam has wowed visitors since its construction in the 1930s. Today, there are various ways to view the immense wonder: tours outside and inside the dam, a drive on the spectacular new four-lane highway bridge arching across the Colorado River, or even on a paddle craft tour in the river below.
