5 Creepy Facts About Nevada

  1. Filled with creepy items of all types, Las Vegas is home to The Haunted Museum. From haunted dolls to possessed mirrors, there’s no telling what you’ll come across when you visit. We suggest bringing a friend for moral support.
  2. A mystery known as the Nevada Triangle has taunted pilots for years. Similar to the Bermuda Triangle, it’s an area where planes are known to vanish without a trace.
  3. Referred to as the “UFO Capital of the World,” the small town of Rachel is known as the place to go if you’re looking to spot a UFO. There have been hundreds of UFO sightings in the area, which may or may not be attributed to the town’s close proximity to Area 51.
  4. Between the years 1977 and 2002, the town of Fallon experienced an unusual amount of deaths. What’s really odd about these deaths is that they all shared the same cause: leukemia. Experts have made theories regarding the cause, but to this day nobody really knows for certain what caused this infamous Fallon cancer outbreak.
  5. Nevada’s vast and remote landscape made it prime territory for conducting nuclear experiments. More than 800 tests were conducted at one particular test site in a 40-year span. The site consisted of a “fake town” and visitors are allowed to tour it just a few times a year.
