Driving the Extraterrestrial Highway: A Nevada Road Trip in Search of Aliens!

If you don’t know what you’re looking for, State Route 375 may seem like an ordinary stretch of road, but for those who believe in alien life, this is a pilgrimage site better known as the Extraterrestrial Highway!

Located in south-central Nevada, State Route 375 spans a total of 98 miles between the towns of Warm Springs and Crystal Springs and it is punctuated by desert landscapes, empty roads, and a few quirky attractions worth a visit.
