There are a number of interesting spots to pull of and visit on this deserted stretch of highway. Keep your eyes open and make sure to stop at the Little A'Le'Inn!

Let me begin by saying if you stick to the highway (375) you aren’t going to see any of Area 51 or Groom Lake. That was fine by me, as I didn’t fancy an encounter with the Men In Black (or maybe I did, but...More

Super nice drive on the highway took some pictures at the famous sign shame the post box has gone. A must visit for the enthusiast, 2 hours from Vegas 1 hour from Alamo. Beware of wondering wild cattle and deer.

The sign has so many stickers on it, you can barely read the writing, but this is a great photo opportunity. It's just exciting to be on the ET Highway if you have any interest in Extraterrestrials, or UFO's, etc. A must stop!

The sign is about 1 hour and 40 minutes. Go all the way out to Rachel, NV too. It’s not a bad drive!
