I lived in Las Vegas all of my life, well up until a few years ago when I decided to move the family to a safer place, but I have wondered the same
thing for years. Maybe area 51 has no attraction for the local kid's...I have been to the "gate", conservitively, a hundred times or so and it is
boring and uneventful. In my opinion.
The camps that they set up across the highway are pretty interesting though, and it's alway a good place to meet some decent folks full of really
good stories...all there with the hope of catching some small glimmer of a ufo...it's a hoot for sure.
Of course then there are a few campers just to the north too, trying to catch a good bombing run at the Indian Springs site...they are a pretty
interesting bunch too. Alot of the time you'll catch people moving back and forth from Indian Springs to the camp outside of area 51...some do it
for many months at a time.
Anyway I suppose it is the allure of the posibility of sighting something, or maybe just a picture to put in the scrapbook to say "been there", but
who really knows..everyones got there own idea about the happenings at area 51, and everyone has there own ideas about what their experience will be
like. My bet though is that most leave somewhat disappointed when their expectations are let down.
