This lakeside estate was made famous by Francis Ford Coppola's Godfather II. In 1938, the famed San Francisco industrialist Henry Kaiser led 300 men to build the 15-acre estate around the clock in just 30 days to host a party in celebration of the completion of the Hoover Dam. 22 private homes and a boathouse sit on the estate.

These private residences are no longer holding public tours or functions, but sightseers can take in the views of the famous landmark from the water. See it yourself from a kayak or boat rental.
