I'm going to be in Las Vegas in about two weeks. My friend and I want to get as close as legally allowed to the Area 51/Groom Lake area around just outside of Las Vegas. We're planning for a night drive around 1am-2am. We're heading up highway 93, on to 318 and 375. Hopefully there are some side roads that will bring us closer. I know there are forbidden gravel roads but there must be some still not blocked off. (We will be definitely keeping within the law.)
I would like to know if anyone has done this during the day or night. Do you have any suggestions. (For the main drive as well as any off the main roads).
