Alien theme throughout the town / shops and stores all offer an array of merchandise- interesting as well as comical at times - fun to go in the stores and see the street lights decorated as Aliens 👽

It was a destination for my daughter and I. We enjoy the older cheesy attractions and we enjoyed it very much and we were hoping there was more.

This is small-town America with a twist. While there is not a lot to see it is charming and cheerfully embracing of its alien allure.

Roswell has so much character. At Christmastime, the streetlamp bulbs have alien eyes and are wearing Santa hats! It is a place where history careens into science fiction and young hipster meets the Old hippies. It is a educational day trip full of photo opportunities,...More
