12 Incredible Places In The World You’ll Never Get To See
In modern times, most people expect to be able to go wherever they want. Cheaper and easier travel as well as a greater distribution of wealth has given the vast majority of the population the ability to go to places they never could before. But despite that, there are still plenty of places around the world where it’s not possible for ordinary people to go. Whether it is because of security concerns, to keep information secret or just because a location was built to be exclusive, these are all various sites that you’ll never get to see.
Area 51 is paradoxically one of the most famous locations in the world despite it being a highly secretive military base. It has been depicted in numerous films and television shows over the past 20 years due to its remote location in Nevada and high security. Although it has never been officially confirmed what work is done at the military base, it is likely that it is used for developing and testing experimental aircraft and weapon systems.
Officially known as the Joint Defence Facility Pine Gap, it is a military base that is jointly operated by the Australian and United States governments. Parts of the facility are used by both the CIA and NSA and it is believed that the base is used primarily for surveillance and intelligence gathering. Access is strictly governed so that only those with clearance can get close to it and it is further protected by a no-fly zone.
The Bohemian Grove is an exclusive location run by the secretive Bohemian Club. It consists of a number of buildings, stages and encampments located in Monte Rio, California. It hosts a variety of events, the most famous of which is a two-week camp for its members that is held every summer. Only a select few people can ever visit the Bohemian Grove though, as it is a private members club, with only the extremely rich and powerful allowed to join. This has included U.S. presidents such as Richard Nixon, CEOs and other company executives for military contractors, banks and oil companies.
