The already famous ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All Of Us’ event is expected to see millions of people gathering in southern Nevada at the end of this summer. The event invites people to raid Area 51 on September the 20th to search for aliens and other experiments of this kind, hid by the government in the facility.
So far, 1.5 million people have enlisted to participate at the raid, and another 1.1 million say they are interested. It seems the American government is not taking this with a pinch of salt as a US Air Force representative announced that the service would take action against people trying to access the area.
Rachel, Nevada will probably be the gathering place for the Area 51 raiders. The small town is best known as the midpoint of Nevada State Route 375, also known as ‘The Extraterrestrial Highway.’
Travel Nevada’s Area 51 page notes that Area 51 does exist, and it is a part of an active military base, patrolled and guarded by some of the most powerful and heaviest security on Earth. The brochure also states that if one finds oneself close by, they should obey all the signs and don’t ever consider trespassing. People caught near the area will be caught and prosecuted. Area 51 is a top-secret testing facility, and the government and all the companies involved don’t want the public anywhere near the place. At the moment, the closest one can go to the facility is 15 miles away.
On TripAdvisor, there are three separate listings for Area 51 day tours out of Las Vegas, with the price between $175 and $225 per person. However, none of these tours actually visit Area 51.
People who make it to Rachel on September the 20th will probably have to bring along camping gear. The only place to stay in the town is the Little A’Le’Inn, an alien-themed motel. The place’s calendar shows that it is already booked full on September the 19th and the 20th.
