I moved here in 1999 from Germany. Love this town. So many fun things to do. Hiking, Birding, Horseback Riding, Watching tourists at the UFO Festival. Great mix of people and activities. I joined the Elk's lodge and we have always something going on. Looking forward every year to the Dragonfly Festival, Pinata Fest, Chile/Cheese Festival and so much more!

Roswell not only has the friendliest aliens, it also is a great place to live! Veterans are treated as first class citizens here--I know since I am a retired veteran!

Roswell proved to be a very fun excursion when visiting Albuquerque! It took us a couple of hours to get there and there is not much to see on the way but once you get there it sure is unique! We were typical tourists and made sure to visit the International UFO Museum and Research Center where anything and everything UFO related could be found. We also made sure to check out the gift shops where you can find little aliens on just about anything you could think of. This is such a fun little town and I can't wait to go back and visit the other museums and the winery.
