Did not appreciate the consistent probing and testing done on me. They then took me to their home planet and made me live with their people. Don't waste your time. You'll regret it.

“A long way from nowhere”
Reviewed November 8, 2008

We visited area 51 on our recent trip to vegas. About a 2.5 to 3 hr (one way) drive from the strip on good roads except for the last 10 miles or so which is unsealed but still ok for a 2 wheel drive vehicle. We got all the maps from the dreamland site which were very accurate. We would have driven straight past the unmarked turnoff otherwise! We stopped at the restricted area signs and saw the car on the hill watching us. We took photos and video even though the sign said not to. Not driving for 5-6 hours and not getting a photo! We also went to the black mailbox and the little ale'inn which is only a few miles away. My girlfriend was very keen to see all of this and she got a lot more out of it than i did although its good to be able to say i've been there now.
