Full description
See the airline that "doesn't exist" at McCarren International Airport before making your way to the Area 51 airbase on Groom Lake that also didn't exist for decades - according to officials. Travel through some of the most desolate but scenic desert in the world to get there.

Marvel at the 6-foot Indian petroglyphs that resemble aliens, and explore the mysterious dry lake where recent sightings of UFOs have been reported. Continue along the "Extraterrestrial Highway" to arrive at Little A'le' Inn, scene of numerous movies including "Independence Day." Find a wealth of information and souvenirs about the top-secret area, and enjoy a burger before going to the infamous Black Mailbox to explore a sacred meeting place for UFO enthusiasts.

Arrive at the absolute perimeter of Area 51 through an unexplained "mutant" Joshua tree forest, where guards stand watch with detection devices and cameras mounted among the cacti. Wave at the heavily armed guards - if you dare!
