If you are looking for ideas from specific cities, we've already written about amazing weekend escapes from New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago and other cities.After you get tired of gambling and eating, take a short ride to see Hoover Dam, an amazing engineering feat that is on every American’s Bucket List.The dam is located in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, and its construction created Lake Mead and Boulder City, which was built to house the workers hired to build the dam.This concrete monster is 726.4 feet high and was completed in 1935.'Our study provides convincing evidence that a significant minority of normal subjects can share not just the emotional component of an observed injury, but also the sensory component,' said Dr Derbyshire, of the University of Birmingham.'We think this confirms that at least some people have an actual physical reaction when observing others being injured or expressing pain.' He noted that those who reported feeling pain also tended to say that they avoided horror movies and disturbing images on the news 'so as to avoid being in pain'.But a third also claimed to feel real pain in the same part of the body as the person they were watching.Some experienced tingling or aching, others felt a heavy or stabbing pain.
But there are some who don't just have an emotional reaction to another's agony - they feel genuine physical pain as well, researchers have found.
The best view of the dam is from the Mike O' Callaghan -- Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, which is approximately 1,500 feet south of the dam.
