Local Roadtrip: Visit the Winged Figures at Hoover Dam

Winged Statues at Hoover Dam Boulder City, NV

It’s a common phenomenon that when we live close to a tourist attraction in our home town, we don’t always take advantage of it…

It’s the height of the season down at Hoover Dam, but if you haven’t recently, consider a drive out there to appreciate up-close-and-personal, the art deco Winged Figures of the Republic.

Sculptor Oskar Hansen who created them, and most of the rest of the artwork at the Dam, is featured in this article we found from Roadside America.

Check it out – and be sure if you visit, that you touch the feet of the statues, turned golden by all the tourists giving them a rub for good luck!
