The city of Roswell is situated in the south-eastern part of New Mexico in the USA . This relatively small city, at least for the USA, with only 50,000 inhabitants became famous all over the world after the Roswell Incident. In 1947, a space ship supposedly landed nearby. The city became a popular tourist site and the incident has inspired many books, movies and TV series.

About the city

Roswell is best known for its unordinary past. You can get further information about the Roswell Incident at the International UFO Museum and Research Center. In case you are interested in learning more about the space from which the UFO arrived, visit the local Robert H. Goddard Planetarium. The city Roswell offers other attractions as well, such as the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art, the Spring River ZOO or a golf course. For UFO fans, the 3-days Amazing Roswell UFO Festival annually takes place in Roswell on 4 July. If the aliens had not landed so rashly, Roswell could have been known as the city of mozzarella as the largest cheese manufactory in the USA is located there.

Surroundings

The aliens indeed chose a good place for landing. The Bottomless Lakes State Park, where you can try out scuba-diving and other activities, is definitely worth seeing . The Bittter Lake National Wildlife Refuge, home to many endangered species, on the northern edge of the Chihuahuan Desert is just nearby. It is a popular site for photographers and a perfect place for taking bike or car trips as well as for hiking.
