Area 51 Day Tour
10 hours (Approx.)
Military bases aren't always tourist attractions, but the so-called Area 51 Air Force facility in Nevada is – mostly because it's top secret.
Historically, the facility known commonly (though not officially) as Area 51 was involved with building and testing experimental and classified aircraft and weapons. Today, what goes on at Area 51 is also classified, but the site is at the epicenter of lots of conspiracy theories.
Many believe that UFOs and the aliens piloting them have been captured by the government and brought to Area 51 for research. This includes items thought to have been found in Roswell, New Mexico. Whatever you believe, an entire tourist industry focused on extraterrestrial life has grown up in the area, including the small town of Rachel, nearest the site.

Moving on, you'll arrive at the absolute perimeter of Area 51 through a strange and mutant Joshua Tree forest where the guards (The Men In Black) with their high powered weapons, forever stand watch along with detection devices, listening devices and cameras mounted among the cactus. The signs read, "Top Secret Military Facility, Keep Out, Use of Deadly Force Authorized" and you can be sure they mean it. You can wave at the heavily armed guards in the 4x4 parked on the desert hillside but they never wave back! They just wait and watch from behind their darkened windows.
As much as the United States government denied the existence of this base for decades, it's now known it is there but no one knows what they do there. This is an Extreme Tour to the world's most top secret military facility, the real home of the X files, Area 51.
