Try the Wild Island Family Adventure Park in Northern Nevada if this is your kind of excitement.

Little A'Le'Inn

One of my favorite lesser-known Nevada attractions is the Little A'Le'Inn. It is a restaurant and inn-with RV hookups-located in Rachel, Nevada off of Highway 375.

places-to-visit-in-nevada-02; little a le inn The highway is better known as "The Extraterrestrial Highway" that leads to Area 51; and Rachel is probably known as one of Nevada's smallest towns, with a population of only 98!

Just the same, when you're driving along the seemingly never-ending highway, you probably won't see any sign of life until you reach the Little A'Le'Inn.

Don't worry though-you'll find earthlings, not aliens!

However, you will come across plenty of extraterrestrial photographs and various Martian souvenirs.

Some tourists visit the Little A'Le'Inn to find the proof they've been looking for, while others visit it for its strangeness, but my family goes there simply because we enjoy the hot chocolate and the friendly people that run the place!

We always make sure to stop at the Little A'Le'Inn on our drive from Northern Nevada to Southern Utah. (You can also take that route to travel from Reno to Las Vegas or vice versa.)

It is a convenient pit stop, but it is also a fun and unique attraction that you won't find anywhere else!

When you near the inn, there's a road sign posted that reads, "Population: Humans 98, Aliens ??", as well as a flying saucer hanging from a crane. You may become a little nervous when you step out of your RV onto Rachel's desolate dirt for the first time, but like I said, the people are friendly and the place is worth seeing-even if it does appear a little off-kilter at first.

If you don't plan on renting an RV space for the night (maybe in hopes of some UFO sightings!), at least grab a bite to eat, try the tasty hot chocolate, listen in for some tall tales, and use the bathroom-because you won't come across another one for awhile!
