Didn't see any aliens. Lots of desert and nothingness; a long way out and away from anything to justify the distance! Oh, and the famous postbox is no longer there

If you take a drive in rural Nevada, you may find yourself on the ET Highway. Not much to see and rest stops are few and far between, but it's an interesting drive on a two lane highway where the cows in the open range outnumber the cars.

What a way to drive across central Nevada! We were on our way from Bryce Canyon Utah to Yosemite California and decided to break our journey at Tonopah Nevada. The drive from Bryce to Tonopah is clsoing in on 400 miles and takes about 6-7 hours, but what a great drive! The extraterestial highway (actually state highway 375) is the... More

My husband and I are total geeks for everything space and UFOs. We have both wanted to come here since we were little kids. It didn't disappoint. We stayed at the Little A'Le'Inn and drove up to a couple of the gates at area 51. You can see for miles in both directions. Free range cows everywhere and beautiful rolling... More

My husband is very interested in the history of UFO's for no better words. Since I knew about Rachel and the Extraterrestrial Highway, I drove there to show him Rachel and the sign. Yes, of course, we took a picture of the sign but geeze, the sign is full with stickers, you can hardly even make out the words. The... More

I love the desert so for me it was a wonderful day of seeing the lovely view from the car window. Sometimes you dont see another car for a long time.

This Journey will change your beliefs that life does exist in other universes and that Las Vegas is just a Bad Dream!! As a Corporate Pilot for years; I can recall the number of unusual objects that the first officer and I have viewed and observed. This R/T Drive will lasts approx. Five to Six Hours Plus.
