Situated along State Route 375, Nevada’s Extraterrestrial Highway, the little town of Rachel offers visitors an experience that is truly out of this world. Adjacent to the legendary “Area 51,” Rachel is famous for its numerous UFO sightings.
Founded in 1973, the UFO Capital of the World attracts visitors from around the globe – and beyond. Drop by the Little A’Le’Inn Restaurant and Bar for one of their famous Alien Burgers and talk to owner Pat Travis about the latest unexplained sightings. There’s also a unique gift shop with a collection of UFO photographs to see.
For something a little more grounded, you can explore the nearby Leviathan Cave, Worthington Mountain Wilderness Area, dozens of abandoned mines and camps (including the Tempiute mine) and the Quinn Canyon Range, part of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest.
