- Infamous around the world, Area 51 is perhaps the most well-known secret air base on the
planet. Surrounded in controversay and conspiracy, Area 51 is best thought of as housing UFO's and
alien bodies recovered from the Roswell, New Mexico flying saucers crash. Tales
of reverse engineering of alien space craft to numerous sightings of foreign and
unexplained flying objects in the night skies, bring visitors to the nearby town
of Rachel, Nevada right off the Extraterrestrial Highway, to investigate. Rachel
is also home to the Area 51 Research Center and a great little cafe called the
Little A Le Inn. Known by many names such as Groom Lake and Dreamland, this was
the design location of the stealth fighter. This secret air base is nestled in
Several dry lake beds in the area provide ample testing grounds for high-security designed
aircraft and anything "out-of-this-world". The US Government denies the
existance of this base which is clearly seen on Russian satellite transmissions
and by the brave few who hike to the boundaries of this intensely secure area.
Signs warn that trespassers may be subject to deadly force. James Bond style
listening devices and video cameras dot the entire perimeter. Black SUV's and
helicopters appear out of nowhere at the slightest intrusion. But don't
worry...the US Government says...there's nothing there!

story giraffe and a den of bears will delight children and outdoor sport

Bonnie & Clyde's "Death Car" - If
you're stopping by Primm, NV (Stateline - about 35 miles south of Las Vegas on Interstate 15)
stop in at Whiskey Pete's Hotel & Casino to see the actual bullet-riddled
Ford in which the famous bank robbers had their final shoot out with the FBI.
A letter from Ford Motor Company authenticates the car as Clyde's. And a
letter he wrote to Ford Motor Company offering his praises as a fine get-away
car is also displayed. Read about the last years of Bonnie and Clyde's
turbulent life style. A fascinating piece of American history. Recently added
is the actual blood stained, bullet-holed shirt Clyde was wearing when he was
killed. Also on display is a restored Dutch Schultz-Al Capone bullet-proof
Gangster Car. The intriguing display is located in the rotunda that joins
the resort to The Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas. Adm: FREE 7 days, 24 hours.

want to call ahead if the visit is going to be out of your way.
"Bugsy" Segal Memorial
- Located in a small grotto behind the Flamingo Hilton
Hotel, you'll find a plaque dedicated to a man who many say inspired the

unfinished property and from there it's history.
China Ranch Date Farm
- If you want to get away from the glitter of neon, take a drive out to the a
beautiful natural oasis just on the Nevada / California border to a quaint
little place called China Ranch. Rich with western history, this small working
farm offers an incredible selection of fresh grown dates and delicious baked
goods. The huge date palms are skirted with, hard to believe but yes, women's
attire. The brightly colored petticoats keep the birds at bay so patrons may
enjoy the best of the harvest. A short walking trail through the palm grove
explains the wide variety of dates cultivated here. It's a good idea to stop at
the gift shop on your way out for a batch of fresh made chocolate chip date
cookies or date nut bread. It's on the way to Death Valley from Las Vegas and
the area surrounding the farm is rich with abandoned
mines and scenic cliffs. The Old Spanish Trail is within walking distance,
as is the historic Tonopah & Tidewater railroad bed. A short drive from the
ranch you'll find a natural Tecopa hot springs where people from all over
sit and relax, letting the unrefined mineral waters soak their troubles away.

busy all night. Entertainment on 2 stages set up in the mall on various
weekends and holidays also add to the excitement of Downtown Las
Vegas. FREE admission. (800) 249-3559.

Oldest Living Bristlecone Pine in the World
- about 40 miles Northwest of Las Vegas, near Mt Charleston is the oldest
known living Bristlecone Pine tree in the world. Not as well known as the more

your hiking shoes as it is quite a hike from the roadway. It is located
along the North Loop Trail below Mummy Mountain at about 10,000 ft elevation.
Authorities will not reveal the precise location of the specific oldest tree
with this distinction in order to protect it, so don't expect a posted sign,
however MANY of the trees in the vacinity are nearly as old. To get to the
trail head: take I-15 north from Las Vegas to Highway 95 N to Reno about 10
miles to Highway 157 and turn left to Mt Charleston Kyle Canyon). Then it's

DIVE! Las Vegas - Now Closed. A
Steven Spielberg brain child. DIVE! was a submarine-themed restaurant
located in the front of the Fashion Show Mall. Everything from the entrance in the
underground parking lot to the top floor was kept in submarine context.
When the alarms sound to DIVE, the windows appeared to actually submerge
under the sea. Scenes of Atlantis and beautiful aquatic life swam past the
huge front screen. A sky trolley with strange looking submarines traversed
the entire restaurant. Oh, and guess which sandwich on the menu Mr. Spielberg
invented; claims are he couldn't get one like this anywhere else so he had to
open his own restaurant to get one. Unfortunately he'll have to make it himself
