The town of Roswell in south-east New Mexico has become the
focus of UFO and alien hunters from all over the world every since
the 'Roswell Incident' in 1947, when an alien craft purportedly
crashed near the town leaving surviving extra-terrestrials.
Conspiracy theorists believe government authorities deliberately
covered up the crash. The incident, as well as a large collection
of UFO-related material, is highlighted at the International UFO
Museum and Research Center in Main Street, Roswell. The museum also
features a worldwide UFO sighting map and a comprehensive library.
Roswell itself is just as UFO-crazy, and you can eat at UFO-themed
cafes, and buy just about anything you can think of with an alien
