Hoover Dam- Best way to visit?

We will be traveling from the Las Vegas airport to St. George, UT and returning from the South Rim Grand Canyon to the LAS airport. Which route would make the most sense to include a visit to Hoover Dam? I've checked some recent information, but it doesn't indicate a "best" route. Thanks!

Your best bet would be on the return trip to Vegas. But if you are spending anytime in Vegas I would do it as a separate day trip from there!

While heading to St. George you will be heading in a different direction then Hoover Dam.

Hoover Dam is about an hour southeast of the Vegas strip. Travelling hwy 93 from Arizona will pass right by the dam. You may wish to stop on your way to Vegas from the south rim, if you have time. Obviously, returning from Vegas will not require a lot of time, if you need to spend more time touring the Hoover Dam site.
