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.

Extraterrestrial Highway. What more can I say! #extraterrestrialhighway #rainbow #rainclouds #nevadadesert #explorenevada #roadtrip
The Extraterrestrial Highway runs through central Nevada and the small town of Rachel, the only stop between Tonopah and Ely or Pioche, depending which way you let the light guide you...so what’s so special about this? The highway skirts the parameter of the world famous Area 51, where a stop on the side of the highway or a trip down a dirt road anywhere after Rachel and close enough to the border will earn you a visit from some very official looking gentlemen, prompting you to leave immediately. Our advice? Don’t chance it, just wait to get beamed up instead like andre_shoootzz . Where is your favorite quirky spot in Nevada?

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. .

Hanging out at an alien-themed bar/restaurant/store/motel in the middle of nowhere. Nevada is the best.
Another stop along Route 95 between Vegas and Reno is Tonopah, a mining town with possibly one of the coolest tales of discovery... Back in 1900, prospector Jim Butler was said to go looking for a burro that had wandered off during the night. When he found the animal the next morning, he picked up a rock to throw at it in frustration. He noticed the rock was unusually heavy... Turns out he stumbled onto the second richest silver strike in Nevada history.
