The Little A'Le'Inn is still a favorite place of mine to visit, they recently remodeled the inside.

The Little A Le Inn: Bar and Motel

Probably the most anticipated beer and Alien Burger you can have after a long drive through the desolate, beautiful Nevada desert. I was greeted with a warm hello and local company before heading off to do some dispersed camping. Definitely make this a must check out experience that could be out of this world!

UFO tow.

ET Highway And The Little AleInn

Highway 375 in Nevada, aka the Extraterrestrial Highway, boasts many UFO sightings, but watch out for cattle as it is open range. Gas up before you begin and make sure you visit the restaurant in Rachel for great diner food. Great people, beautiful scenery and a well-paved highway make this a must see.

Road to Rachel.

The Little A Le Inn - Area 51 Bar

Definitely worth the detour if you are into aliens, conspiracy theories and are on the hunt for good, old fashioned American Road Trip relics! The restaurant was actually really tasty; they take credit cards and there are a lot of cool things to look at. Be prepared with a full tank of gas, there is no gas on 375 at all, middle of nowhere!
