Colorado River, Nevada

4.5
#7 of 34 in Nature in Nevada
Take in one of America's most famous and fiercest rivers, , and enjoy the wealth of recreation along its banks or rapids. The number of high-quality white-water rafting trips available has earned the 2,330 km (1,450 m) river the nickname "granddaddy of white-water rafting." However, the faint of heart need not worry, as it's not all thrills and spills on this body of water. More relaxing pastimes, such as wildlife watching and relaxing river walks, also draw a big crowd. The river's dramatic scenery is just as breathtaking as the rapids, with its varied flora and striking canyons. If you're embarking on a rafting trip, take precautions to protect your camera from water damage or loss.

Where to stay in Boulder City

Staying in one of downtown’s comfortable hotels keeps you close to the town’s stores, restaurants, and museums while on vacation. There are several theme hotels to choose from, reminiscent of Las Vegas’ glitz and playfulness. A motel located on the outskirts of town is often a cheaper option, and will usually provide convenient access to the highway if you are passing through. Many accommodations offer swimming pools, a great way to cool down after a day exploring in the Nevada heat.
