It’s impossible to avoid aliens when you visit Roswell, New Mexico. Bakeries, music stores, even financial services have little green men painted on their storefronts. Alien heads appear everywhere, even on street lamps. And the phrase “out of this world” is used in just about every advertisement.
But this town of 50,000 in southern New Mexico is more than just spaceships and quaintly stylized Martians. If you can see past the UFO-shaped playground at McDonald’s, you’ll find an unexpectedly diverse range of activities.
