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

It's a road sign but it's a very cool road sign. You pull up and take a picture then put a sticker on to validate your passed by. This was one off the bucket list and then you head on down the road to the next stop.

We were here in the end of August and it was super hot! Car temperature said it was 102 outside. Took some nice pics of the sign with the family and there are some nice views as you round the top of the mountain in the distance. Watch for cows though. I can see why they get hit at night.... More

We set of from LV in the Mustang we had hired. Eventually we got to the ET highway and I was so excited as it had been on the bucket list for years. We drove down towards Rachel and stopped off at the Black Post box (wich is white) signed our names and made our way on to groom lake... More

Not much to say really, definitely worth a visit if you can. It's a good sign to show you that you are on track to go and visit the other sights.
