Located on a lonesome stretch of the San Luis Valley, the UFO Watchtower is situated in the middle of one of the most active UFO-sighting areas on the planet. Plan to spend plenty of time talking with Judy, the proprietor, who will regale you with local UFO lore and stories about her personal meetings with aliens. The shop is full... More

There is a lot of weird stuff that goes on in this valley. My husband is from Antonito Colorado he has first hand experience of some weird stuff in this valley, mostly orbs... More

Off the road you come upon this tower with little UFO's and different fixtures placed throughout the area. Women running this place firmly believes she has seen UFO's in the valley. Interesting place, and a quick stop.

Took my sister from NYC just so she could get the quirky gift shop souvenirs to take home. Yes it is basically a six foot high additional "tower" so you get an even BETTER look at all those UFOs whizzing by. It really is a great location for star gazing, just like the whole San Luis Valley. But go anyway.... More

We were on our way out of the valley driving down Hwy 61. I was on the look out for this, thinking it was an actual tower. If it looked promising, I was going to talk Scott into stopping. We did slow the car, since there was no one behind us. It looks like a typical tourist trap & a... More

Ok- it looks weird from the road and you don't know what kind of freak you're going to meet thats running it as you drive up a dirt road and see alien sculptures - and a small half circle building with a deck on the top- really? I was skeptical. But when the truck pulled up behind us and it... More

We like the offbeat stop, and this one takes the cake. About the same as our last stop here many years ago, but not open this time (bummer!). Cost is $2 per person or $5 per car- pay in the box if they're not open. We did take the opportunity of no one else there to snap some aerial views... More

While in Alamosa we decided to get off the beaten path, so I printed out a list of odd attractions to see in Colorado. We pulled in to this watchtower and had to laugh. There was no one to take our money but my husband left it in the box anyway. The shop was closed so we just walked around... More
