9. We Come in Peace: Extraterrestrial Highway, Rachel, Nevada

After years of reports of bizarre extraterrestrial behavior near top-secret government base Area 51, a stretch of Nevada State Route 375 was deemed the Extraterrestrial Highway. If driving through, be prepared to take the possibility of other-worldly life very seriously, as one sign warns of alien encounters for the next 51 miles. One TripAdvisor traveler said, "The ET Highway itself is literally in the middle of nowhere, but is a very scenic and pretty drive."
