My husband was recently hurt and walking up and down the strip was not a realistic. For a fun and interesting trip to Vegas, I planned several day trips away from the strip that would limit his physical activity. One such trip involved the Extraterrestrial Highway. My recommendation is to watch the movie “Paul” before you go and to print the online coupon from the A'Le'inn website. While on the highway make sure that you get a photo of the Extraterrestrial Highway sign, of the old cacti on the side of the road, the white mailbox, Area 51 guard shack, the Little A’Le’inn, and the cows. Note that we drove to Rachel without any problems in a rental car with our GPS that we brought from home. We felt perfectly safe. I would recommend that you keep the car at least ½ full of gas all the time. Gas stations are rare on the ET HWY. Also, the area is a free range, so slow down when you see cows because they can walk out in the road.
