The Crazy One-Of-A-Kind Store You’ll Only Find In New Mexico
There’s a lot more to Roswell than UFOs and aliens. But, let’s face it, that’s why many tourists are drawn to this New Mexican city. If you’re going to embrace the idea of little green men, there are a couple of stops that you’ll want to make in Roswell.
After you’ve investigated the
International UFO Museum and Research Center and chowed down at the spaceship McDonald’s, it’s time to pick up some souvenirs and get in some kitschy photo ops. That’s where Alien Zone comes in.
This one-of-a-kind store is devoted to alien-themed paraphernalia.
The Alien Zone makes and sells t-shirts, using designs from local artists.
When you’ve loaded up on out-of-this-world souvenirs, check out the back room, which is the most intriguing part of the store.
There’s a small fee to gain access to "Area 51" but it’s worth it for the laughs.
Here you’ll find aliens are posed in ridiculously banal situations.
One is using a pay phone.
Another hangs out in a lawn chair, next to a grill.
Some of the scenarios are a little more dramatic.
Go ahead and ham for the camera. It’s cheap, it’s fun, and your social media followers will get a kick out of the pics.
Even dogs can take part!
Alien Zone is located at 216 N Main Street in Roswell. Learn more at the store’s
