From top-secret government facilities to an island infested with venomous snakes, here are 25+ places you wish you could explore but can't.
Though you may have the ability to speak your mind, travel to new locations, and pursue the type of career and life you want, there are certain freedoms that are restricted to you. One is traveling anywhere in the world that seems appealing.
There are a number of places the average citizen is not allowed to explore, and following is a list of them. From top secret government facilities to villages destroyed by radiation, here are 25+ places you wish you could go visit but can’t.
#1 Snake Island, Brazil
Off the coast of Brazil is a small island that contains approximately 4,000 of the world’s deadliest snakes. Because some of the snakes’ venom literally melts flesh, tourists have been banned from visiting by the Brazilian government.
#2 Area 51, Nevada
Area 51 is a secret U.S. base which is situated deep in the Nevada desert. It’s the attention of conspiracy theories because its purpose remains unknown to the public.
If one was able to explore it, would they find alien technology? What about highly experimental aircrafts? Theories abound…
#3 The Queen of England’s Bedroom
You wouldn’t want anyone snooping through your bedroom, so this one is pretty understandable. The Queen of England’s bedroom is located in Buckingham Palace and is heavily guarded. When a man named Michael Fagan broke into the bedroom in 1982, it was considered to be one of the biggest royal security breaches.
#4 Club 33 at Disney World
Disney World may be open to the public, but Club 33 has an exclusive waiting list – reportedly, one of 14 years. And, if you did get on the list, you’d have to pay a $40,000 (£26,000) initiation fee. To retain access, you’d have to pay a $27,000 (£18,000) annual fee. Still worth it?
#5 The Coca-Cola Vault
The secret formula to the Coca-Cola recipe is locked safely inside the corporation’s vault. Some suggest it is one of the most heavily guarded secrets.
