There’s No Attraction In The World Quite Like This One In New Mexico

The events of July 1947 forever changed Roswell. The city, once a sleepy pit stop for cowboys driving cattle, has become synonymous with UFOs and extraterrestrials. Now, when you visit, you’re greeted with little green men, promoting everything from hotels, to restaurants, to stores.

But what do we actually know about the Roswell Incident? Any established facts seem to have been buried in theories and speculation. It’s natural to wonder if we’re alone in the Universe. But to decide what we believe, we need all the information, and that is housed in the International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
