UFOs? Aliens? Check This Out

A very popular side trip from Vegas, less than 150 miles away, is Rachel, Nevada. Rachel is as close as you can get to Area 51 without getting arrested or shot. It is also in the center of SR 3shutterstock_9544294075, which the state of Nevada officially designated as the “Extraterrestrial Highway” in 1996.

Over the years the many reports of UFO sightings have spiked interest in the area. These reports and the many television programs about Area 51 keep curiosity seekers and serious UFOlogists coming to Rachel.

There is another attraction in Rachel. It’s called the Little A’Le’Inn. It is a place to eat, stay overnight, or buy gifts and souvenirs. If you go during the Holiday Season, you can purchase some alien Christmas stockings. They also sell hats, coffee cups, and t-shirts. How about a green alien head bank or an alien hitchhiker shot glass?

Pat, the owner of Little A’Le’Inn, has been entertaining and hosting visitors from all over the world for twenty-five years. She and the staff love meeting new people and will tell you what there is to do in the area and how to stay out of trouble. Those that trespass into Area 51 may not come back. The use of deadly force is authorized.
