How to get there?
If you own car or rent a car--
All you have is a freedom to explore.Get full tank of gas.The entire trip took about 1 and quarter tanks of gas. You’ll probably have to refill on the way back.The major Area 51 attractions are only sights and fences, so any trip out is only as exciting as what you know about the myths behind the mountains.
You might staying in Las Vegas hotel and tours depart at 7 a.m on Wednesday.Tours pick up you from hotel
You'll see the Extraterrestrial Highway sign, the state of Nevada's official name for the local stretch of Highway 375. The sign is on the north side of Highway 375, just west of its split with Highway 318 and its intersection with U.S. 93. This point is about 8 miles north of Alamo Landing Field and 4 miles south of Hiko, Nevada. This is about 62 miles east of Rachel.Visit the Alien Research Center there. This is a very roadside attraction-style museum, with "top secret documents" and other paraphernalia. Drive down the dirt road until you reach the fence marked with signs warning you to stay off military property and that the use of deadly force is authorized. Look around with binoculars. Amid the cacti are surveillance cameras and motion sensors, and you might even see armed guards, also known as the "Men in Black," in their unmarked 4 x 4s.
Drive to Rachel, Nevada. This is the nearest town to Area 51 and is home of the Little Little A Le Inn. This restaurant and motel caters to a decidedly UFO-friendly crowd and is a logical choice for a meal during your visit in the area or to spend the night if you do not wish to return to Las Vegas.
The best way to experience the Mojave is to camp. Much of the area is Bureau of Land Management land, with open camping allowed.The beauty and isolation of this desert is immense and should be experienced first-hand by travellers with time and adequate vehicles and supplies.
Somewhere in the Mojave Dessert, there is exists an 11-by-5-foot pool.It's called the "Social Pool" that installed/created by Austrian artist named Alfredo Barsuglia. The pool amazingly maintained by it's visitors who must first go to the MAK Centre for Art and Architechture in West Hollywood and pick up one of four keys and a set of GPS coordinates.
There's a place in Mojave Dessert called Red Rock Canyon. It's about 27,000 acre state park situated at the tip of the Sierra Nevada Range.Despite all of these attempts to capture the beauty of Red Rock Canyon on film, pictures just don’t do the place justice. You have to see if for yourself.
