We found it fun to be so close to the area.
The restaurant/bar (Little Alien Inn) is quaint and has some great pictures on the wall.
At the sign we met a couple who had flown in from Switzerland (they one the farthest travel award..lol)...More
I expected the Extraterrestrial Highway to be a little more alien themed. Besides the 2 signs and a couple of aliens at stores it's just a regular road. The scenery is breathtaking. Snow capped mountains, in Las Vegas I know it sounds sketchy, but higher...More
I learned about this place from watching the movie “Dave”. It’s a nice long bleak drive with wide open scrub and skies. I happened to catch the moonrise on the way back from the town of Rachel and it was cool to pull over and...More
This is one of those places you probably cannot accidentally end up at. It's very out if the way. But definitely worth the drive.

If you are a geocacher, you should know about this hwy, there are over 800 caches along the hwy, hardly any traffic to make your stops and find the caches, or speed on down the hwy, you won't see much traffic, might see some stray...More
So for our honeymoon, my husband and I wanted to do something different than the typical tropical island. We are both geeks and pop culture fans so going to Extraterrestrial Highway was a no brainer. We stayed in Las Vegas and decided to make this...More
