Presentations and exhibits on the operation of the dam are offered at the power point, while guided tours take the visitors to explore less-known places in the dam. All the tours start at Hoover Dam's visitors center, where exhibits of the history of the dam and its various roles take place. The tourists have the opportunity to see, among others, the huge hydroelectric generators, an elegant Art-Deco design in the four towers of the dam, the spillways, and the power plants. Near the Colorado river, fishing, boating, landing crafts, water skiing, swimming and camping are all available for the visitors. In addition, a journey in the crafts takes the tourists on the Colorado River.
