Roswell, New Mexico- The Alien Capital of the World.
Greetings earthlings, from The Alien Capital of the World! Roswell is famous for the alleged UFO crash of 1947. This is the perfect place for exploring everything unusual and wacky. While in Roswell I was lucky enough to get to have some close encounters with UFO’s and extraterrestrials of my own!
The Roswell Incident
The International UFO museum is not to be missed while in Roswell! We learned so much about extraterrestrials and UFO’s. They have so much documented information from Ufology experts. Ufologists do research and follow leads on all alien sightings and stories. I loved learning about the history of The Roswell Incident.
The Roswell incident of 1947 is world-famous. It is said that a flying disc crashed into a ranch and that the unidentified flying object was seized and aliens were discovered. The story tells us that the government then brought all of this in for testing at Area 51 and then covered up the entire incident.
I loved all of the interactive alien exhibits and photos and videos of readers findings. They also have a great gift shop with a lot of specialized merchandise. It was such a neat experience to read all about the alleged government cover-up and the conspiracy theories.
Parable of The Roswell Incident
1. The Aliens came- they explored- and they crashed.
2. The Rancher went-he found it-and he reports it.
3. Others raced to the site- and stood mystified.
4. The Air Force went- investigated- and took it.
5. The Government came-confiscated- and denies it.
6. The Men in Black came-singled out- and threatened.
7. Now, no one knows anything about any of it.
Main Street -Roswell’s Downtown Historic District. What a fun and touristy experience! They have aliens and UFO’S stationed everywhere and you can get so many silly photo-ops posing with all of the aliens downtown.
Roswell has really cool street art and wall murals throughout the downtown historic area. My favorite is the space and galaxy graffiti wall. This colorful piece has the planet Saturn and the galaxies painted on the walls.
Alien Zone has a lot of fun alien’s and props that’s photo-op worthy and lots of alien novelties and souvenirs. This is a great place to get some keepsakes to remind you of your wacky time in Roswell. Keep Roswell Weird!
Roswell, you’ve been great! 🚀👽
And my bucket list dreams just keep coming true.
