Because not everything has to be taken so seriously! 🙂
My friends and I had to put this on our road trip itinerary as we wanted a full range of experience as we drove across America – that included everything from party cities like Vegas and New Orleans to more laidback places like San Antonio.
I wouldn’t recommend spending more than a night here necessarily only because it’s fairly compact and so you can see everything in just a few hours!
TIPS FOR VISITING ROSWELL NEW MEXICO
1.) Visit the antique shop on the main street, I can’t remember the name (I don’t think I ever even checked) but you’ll find yourself surrounded by so many overlooked gems that in cities like London or New York would have been snapped up instantly.
2.) Go find some Aliens and UFOs! This is fun for people who are even the slightest bit invested in theories about alien invasions but even more so for kids who have a more active imagination and can hence immerse themselves a lot more in the experience than perhaps their sceptical parents.
3.) And I re-iterate – unless you have family or friends to visit, expect to be able to see all the sights in just a few hours.
