Getting away for a trip is about leaving the “normal” behind for something new. Something different. Something you never thought twice about seeing and doing. That’s why it’s called adventure. Travel. Exploration.
Some places shake you out of your everyday routine better than others, and for this reason you’ve had the Eastern New Mexico town, Roswell, on your radar. This community’s history of extraterrestrial interactions has cemented its stellar reputation as the nerve center for all things alien. But it’s more than UFOs and little green men. Go and discover for yourself.
Begin your day in the Southwestern desert by taking one of our Roswell rental cars out to Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge. Orange sunflowers poke their bright heads out of fields of tall grass along the lake shoreline. The rusty red landscape that seems to go on forever will make you feel as if you’ve been transported to somewhere between the Australian Outback and Mars.
Speaking of distant planets, before heading back to the hotels in Roswell, NM, make your way to 114 N Main Street and step inside the International UFO Museum and Research Center. Get a look into the incident that made this sleepy town famous. When you gaze upon a re-creation of an alien autopsy, you’ll wonder: Why are we so fascinated by these distant beings? Are we determined to learn more about them? Or are we actually learning more about ourselves?
If time among the extraterrestrials has you itching to get back to the great outdoors, leave our downtown Roswell hotels behind and head 15 miles southeast to Bottomless Lakes State Park, aptly named because of the nine small, deep lakes that exist here. Going for a dip in a sinkhole in the middle of the New Mexican desert is about as far out the ordinary as you’ll get during your trip to “All America City.”
