Such an interesting drive to Rachel. Drove up to the area 51 fence but otherwise not much excitement there. Fun to see though. Camped in an RV at Lil Aleinn. $15 a night with water and electricity. Nice little park. We ate several meals in the restaurant and all really really good. Go there.

A dream come true. I always wanted to see it by myself and I enjoyed every minute of my trip. Worth the trip. I recommend it.

We finally got to see this sign for real! Took pictures. It is worth the drive. It’s about 2hours drive from Las Vegas. There are two gas stations on the way once you leave the Vegas. We pass by the Alien Museum first but it was closed at that time. The next stop was the “Extraterrestrial Highway” sign, it is... More

There are miles and miles of nothing. If you are lucky, there may be cows to look at. Be careful as they cross the road on a whim. This is open-range here!

Saw quite a few people on the road and actually we stopped and there were two other cars there. I recommend seeing this for yourself it's just one... More

Miles and miles of open highway to ride on, and the view is interesting. Only negative is the lack of gas stations.

Drove out from Las Vegas. Beautiful scenic drive! Got off the road on to the dirt track to see the gates to Area 51! The truth is out there!

If you are there to see little green or gray aliens or gov't secret facilities, you'll be disappointed. If you are there for the scenic beauty of the deserts varied terrain or to do the epic Geocaching mega trail, it's great and well worth the trip! We had a blast!

It's about a 2 hour drive from where I live in the SW area of Vegas. You have 2 gas stations on the way once you leave city limits and they're both 40 miles apart. So make sure you have a full tank of gas. The drive was pretty, the little ones didn't seem to mind. You hit the alien... More
