Can I ask a favour? I've rebranded my little marketing business, Chris does Content, and approval from my audience helps me win new customers. If you enjoyed my work on the Fallout New Vegas Tour, I'd be really grateful if you visited me here and clicked the Facebook "Like" button at lower right. Thanks!

Location 25: Boulder City

Boulder's historic hotel
Not to be confused with the one in Colorado, Boulder City is the town that built Hoover Dam. In real life it's a cheerful place with a historic downtown, where I stopped for a microbrew at the Boulder Dam Brewing Co (hullo if you're reading this. Your beers are great.)

Bit of a strech, but the biz is there
It's also, unfortunately, among the most totalled joints in the Wasteland - with barely two buildings standing. I'd like to think the first one is the Boulder Dam Hotel, a well-proportioned white building in the historic district; it's in roughly the right place and carries on the same kind of business.

Another Boulder building
Also in Boulder  are a number of buildings with arched walkways on the path, of which this is representative.

Realistically, the buildings in the game could have been based on any of these - or none of them.

Next I'm fast travelling a bit, across the game map to Sloan.

    I don't recall seeing him in the game though.
    He's probably under the rubble, yeah that's it, buried under the rubble, I'm sure of it : )
