We drove from Vegas to Rachel Nevada and it was an amazing drive. Loved everything about it, definitely worth a drive into the desert if yo are ever out there.

You just have to have a photo taken under the sign - it's just good fun if you don't take it all too seriously!

Great scenic drive from Las Vegas to Rachel and some part along the Extra-terrestrial Highway. Road endless and empty - just awesome.

Tip: This is an open range, so be very careful of the cows. AND gas up before you go! We loved the solitude, watching for aircraft, and didn't mind dodging the cows, since it was light out. We also enjoyed the Little Al'Ie Inn, Area 51 gate, etc.

Had always wanted to travel 375. Made the mistake of leaving Tonopah at dusk and drove to Rachel in the dark. Lots of cattle and animals on the road. Had to stop and take picture's of all the signs in the morning.

The little alien in is about 2 hours drive from Las Vegas. We also went to the alien museum which is at the beginning of the extraterrestrial highway, unfortunately it was closed but we still got a photograph of the large man made alien that stands outside. We called in at the alien in to buy some drinks and souvenirs.... More

Pity the sign is plastered in stickers put there by idiots who have no concern for the enjoyment of others. Unfortunately this seems to be the way of things as we encountered the same problem 4 years ago at the Route 66 Begins sign in Chicago. If you must add your sticker put it on the poles holding the sign... More

We were heading for Rachel and the Little A'Le'Inn but were really looking forward to driving the ET Highway. Shortly after you turn onto the road (not far from the Alien Research Centre gift shop) you come to the iconic sign. Sadly it's covered in stickers from past visitors but you can still see the words Extraterrestrial Highway. It's a... More
