Of course, Roswell is best known for the mysterious crash of a UFO, in the desert outside town in 1947. The crash site was described by witnesses as being littered with strange debris and bodies. Government military personnel quickly secured the scene and removed all the evidence to an undisclosed location. Since then, the crash-and what many describe as a government coverup, has been the subject of hot debate.
Today, Roswell is home to plenty of interest for UFO-ologists both young and old, including the UFO Museum, the popular UFO festival, the spacewalk and other attractions.
Roswell’s charm isn’t limited to little green men. Many rave about our many cultural and historical attractions, including the Robert H. Goddard Planetarium, The Walker Aviation Museum as well as the wonderful Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art.
