Most of the town of Roswell appears to be living of the UFO Phenomena. Even the lampposts are made up to resemble aliens.

It costs $4.00 to enter the UFO Museum. ($3.00 with a military discount).

    Thanks for your honest opinion of Roswell! I drove through town twice on business trips while working in Carlsbad but only had time to stop for one meal - which was good. As you say, other than the UFO-thing, there is not much to offer!

    I see the locals are shamlessly cashing in. I can respect that!
