“Nice Walk..Awesome Weather..Alien Footprints”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Neat little Alien shops to duck into. My 5 year old spotted some Alien Footprints we just had to follow and they led us to another Novelty Alien Store. If your in Roswell it's one of those things you should do.

“Make sure to see this at least once”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

If you are into Aliens then this is the place to be.I have been to Roswell many times now and it seems every time I go I find something new. If you want to research the crash of 1947 then make sure to give yourself at least one day for the museum alone and another half day to a day for the rest of the downtown. All of the store owners are very nice and we have a good time every time we go. They also have the Alien Festival around the 4th of July every year and that is really worth seeing. Fun for all.

“Wonderful little town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

We stopped inRoswell on our way to Colorado. We were glad we did! Fun little town. Everything is aliens( as you works probably expect) People in alien costumes, stores to shop, ufo's galore. Even our pancakes at dennys were alien shape. The kids loved it.

“The Courthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

The Courthouse is worth a visit to Downtown Historic District. There is a statue across the street that is very nice.

“Greetings Earthlings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

If you're looking for tacky alien stuff (which we were), you'll find it here. Visiting Roswell with high expectations of alien emporiums will leave you sad. We were satisfied with what we found, although some of the gift shops were closed. UFO muesum could be better, but it was interesting. The guy running the Spacewalk store was hilarious and worth a visit.. He also had the best tshirts and glow-in-the-dark walk through area. Vistor's center was clean and the staff was friendly.
