The downtown area in Roswell is actually one of my favorites anywhere. It is easily walkable with tons of photo-ops and quirky alien-themed shops. It was also surprisingly clean and felt very safe to walk around both during the daytime and at night. For a...More

As we drove into town, their welcome sign was alien related and many of the windows had alien stuff in, on and around them. It was pretty cute!

Worth a drive through if only to see how very well almost every business has included aliens to their storefronts. Even the streetlights have eyes. Fun detour.

We had a good time. Lots of documents to read & pictures, all regarding UFO incidents reported. Whether you're a believer or not, it's fun, interesting, & just kitschy enough! Roswell itself was surprising, nice town!

Nearly everything is based off the UFO scheme, but lots to see and if you have time, it is a fun time just to see everything, very nice around the courthouse.

Rosewell is a tired little town that was lucky enough to have an "event" that put it on the map. For me, I find nothing interesting or historically correct concerning the event and totally dismiss the nonsense. Other than the Military Academy, there are virtually...More
