Well I was looking across the web and found some driving directions to Area51. Found from dreamlandresort.com:
From Las Vegas take I-15 north for 22 miles. At exit 64 take US-93 north. After 85 miles, 12 miles past Alamo, you come to the intersection with Hwy.
318 on the left. Directly across the road from the intersection, to your right, you will see the ruins of an old casino.
At the intersection turn left onto Hwy. 318, and after less than a mile veer left again onto Hwy. 375. At that intersection you will see the
"Extraterrestrial Highway" sign under a group of trees. Ironically, right next to the sign, in the shade of the trees, is where some of the Area 51
workers park their cars to take the white bus into Area 51.
From the beginning of Hwy. 375 it is about 15 miles over Hancock Summit to the beginning of Groom Lake Road, 20 miles to the Black Mailbox and 39
miles to Rachel.
The last gas in Las Vegas is at the Craig Rd. exit. There are a few gas station on the way, in Alamo, Ash Springs, Rachel (only regular unleaded) and
Tonopah. However, some of the stretches without gas are over 100 miles, and some of the gas stations close at night. So you may want to keep an eye on
Please note that most of Hwy. 375 is open range. There are no fences, and cows frequently wander across the road. When you see cows near the road slow
down and be prepared to stop. Be especially careful at night, when cows on the road are very hard to see. Running into a cow will not only cause
severe damage to your vehicle, but you will also have to reimburse the rancher for the cow.
