This Nevada Mountain Is The Only Place To Legally See Area 51

Located in Lincoln County, Tikaboo Peak is just 26 miles east of the infamous, top-secret Area 51 and is the only legal vantage point to see Area 51. In 1995, the U.S. government closed Freedom Ridge and White Sides because of the volume of people photographing and/or filming the base, leaving Tikaboo Peak the only place for those without an ultra top-secret security clearance to catch a glimpse of the base.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
