Area 51, also referred to as Groom Lake, Dreamland, and Paradise Ranch, is an ultra secret federal government air testing facility used to test top secret military aircraft. The only place close to Area 51 where normal people and visitors are welcome is a bar and motel called "The Little A'Le'Inn".
Area 51 is located in the Nevada desert near the Extraterrestrial Highway. Area 51 is often associated with Alien and UFO folklore and is believed by some to harbor crashed flying saucers within their facility. However, aircraft such as the SR-71 Blackbird is easily mistaken for UFO or Alien craft when seen from the front due to it's resemblance to a modern day UFO. The United States Federal Government recently acknowledged the existence of Area 51, contrary to many conspiracy theories.
Area 51 is protected with some of the most high-tech security available to the US Government. There are several warning signs outside of Area 51 that state warnings such as "photography is prohibited" and "use of deadly force authorized" if you are to pass the signs. In addition to the area's top security, there are cameras that watch you in the desert whether or not you are actually on Area 51 territory. Some say that the alleged "men in black" are associated in protecting Area 51 from unwelcome visitors.
