Extraterrestrial Nevada

Define extraterrestrial? In Nevada, challenge accepted. Home to the infamous Area 51 and a legacy of UFO sightings and secret government tests, a trip to the Weirdest, Wildest West promises close encounters with a lot of odd attractions, activities, and colorful characters, too.

The search for extraterrestrial evidence is real here. So buckle up, tackle a road trip that celebrates alien life—on our planet and others—and let’s get weird.

But Wait. Are Extraterrestrials Real?

Well, the people in Rachel, Nevada—the closest town to Area 51 and the arguable capital of the Extraterrestrial Highway—certainly think so. At least enough to whip you up an Alien Burger the second you set foot in their dimension, also known as the Little A’Le’Inn. Share a frosty Alien Amber Ale with the locals (who all seem to have their own UFO sighting stories to share), stock up on alien-themed souvenirs, and investigate walls adorned with all kinds of local and regional extraterrestrial evidence.

Plan to make more of your own extraterrestrial contact at places like the Alien Research Center, E.T. Fresh Jerky, the mysterious Black Mailbox, and more. Want to believe? THE TRUTH IS OUT HERE.

Hanging out at an alien-themed bar/restaurant/store/motel in the middle of nowhere. Nevada is the best.
Wind has always been my least favorite element, but is somehow easier to take when it’s rolling off the largest natural crater in the dang state🌪🤓 #howtonevada

The Clown Hotel Lobby...where nightmares are made, and apparently clown horrors movies until 4 in the morning in the Clown Suite above my room and outside my window... Yes, this is a real motel located in Tonopah, Nevada.  The room was awful and they were seriously making a movie from 10pm until 4 in the morning and the hotel rented out the room below where the movie was being filmed.  I enjoyed remake after remake of fighting, falling on floor, and a lady screaming for hours, a car alarm going off take after take, and the movie lights of all colors shining directly into my room.  I was not happy and smiling at The Clown Hotel.

Hey but I got a refund so there's that!  Take my advice, skip hanging with the clowns!

When I was on this lonely road in Nevada, the entire length of it was lined with flowers. My theory is that the road accumulates moisture at night which seeps down into the soil for those plants to take advantage of. 
OR, aliens. 👽👽👾👾😂 Whatever the cause, they were part of a visually and perhaps even spiritually satisfying drive to California. .
