As the closest habitation to the Nellis Air Force Range and Area 51, Rachel enjoys a modest celebrity, particularly among aviation enthusiasts and UFO hunters.
The town lies approximately three hours drive north of Las Vegas along Nevada Highway 375 (the "Extraterrestrial Highway"), which has an unofficial "speed limit" of Warp 7. The tiny town receives a modest number of visitors interested in the U.S. government's secret doings, to whom a small tourist shop, 3-room motel, and an alien-themed restaurant and bar, the Little A'Le'Inn are available.
Planning on going to Area 51, help me plan my trip

My cousin and I are taking a trip to Las Vegas for a few days, but for the first night we want to stay in either Rachel or Alamo(two closest places to Area 51). Anyone have any experiences with either place as to which one is better to stay?
