Roswell, most commonly known for its part in the 1947 UFO landing, is a city in southeastern New Mexico. It has a population of roughly 47,000 people and a thriving arts and entertainment culture, making it the ideal vacation destination for art lovers and those looking for Vegas-like fun in New Mexico.
Guests visiting Roswell during the hottest summer months will enjoy cooling off, hiking, biking, and camping amidst the natural sinkholes in Bottomless Lakes State Park, or having a picnic and playing sports like soccer at Cahoon Park. Nature lovers can also take the looping drive around the outskirts of Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge where they can see thousands of migratory birds, badgers, bobcats, and deer, as well as take photos of the refuge's beautiful landscape. Rich with history, Roswell is home to a number of great museums for history buffs to explore including the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art, the Roswell Museum & Art Center, the Walker Aviation Museum, and the General Douglas L. McBride Military Museum. Alternatively, visitors can watch a live play or musical at the recently renovated Pearson Auditorium, sample a variety of fine wines including Alien Ale at Pecos Flavors Winery, or go horseback riding and play a few rounds of pool, a couple games of chess, or practice their piano skills at the Burnt Well Guest Ranch.
