City of Boulder City
Located 30 minutes from the Las Vegas airport, Boulder City is a delightful and unique desert town located in the southern tip of Nevada. Boulder City enjoys a distinctive heritage, with its roots beginning with the implementation of one of the most significant public works projects of our time -- the Boulder Canyon Project, a monumental federal undertaking resulting in the construction of Hoover Dam.
Boulder City has many large parks and world-renowned mountain biking trails. The City of Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department also coordinates 2-3 film shoot requests per month. The requests range from local reality shows like Flip or Flop Las Vegas and Pawn Stars to a Netflix production being the biggest project using Boulder City as its backdrop. As in the past years, the Eldorado Dry Lake was the most requested facility for still photo shoots, music videos, commercials, and movie productions especially if you want to appear to be in the middle of nowhere. The detention basin located at Bootleg Canyon, is another popular site for filming due to its seclusion and open space. Hemenway Park, overlooking Lake Mead and home to a herd of Big Horn Sheep, is also a sought after green space setting for various productions.
Boulder City isn’t a sleepy, little town—it is a vibrant, tourist-based community that hosts many special events, supports a variety of recreational activities and is the perfect backdrop for a variety of filming projects.
