Boulder City is a city in Clark County, Nevada. It is approximately 20 miles from the City of Las Vegas. As of the 2000 census, Boulder City population was 14,966 but estimated population at 2005 is 15,177.

Boulder City was originally built by the Bureau of Reclamation as housing for workers who were building Hoover Dam. It was designed by landscape architect Saco Rienk DeBoer. Alcohol sales and all forms of gambling were prohibited in the city. The Bureau did not relinquish control of the city until 1958. Boulder City was officially incorporated on January 4, 1960, and the city council selected pharmacist Robert N. Broadbent as the first mayor.

The city charter, approved by the residents, prohibited gambling within the city limits. This provision still exists, making Boulder City the only location in Nevada where gambling is illegal. Alcohol sales were permitted in 1969.

Boulder City has two municipal golf courses, a city pool, racquetball complex, lighted tennis courts, athletic fields, BMX bicycle track, and ample mountain hiking trails. Nevada's first municipal airport is still in operation today, accommodating private planes, skydiving trips, and scenic aerial tours of Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon.
