If you know anything about Roswell, New Mexico, it's probably that something is believed to have crashed there in July 1947. The Roswell Daily Record quoted military sources as saying they recovered a “flying disc” at the site — before quickly backtracking and saying the wreckage was from a weather balloon. When conspiracy theories popped up decades later, the town came to embrace them, forever linking Roswell and little green men in the zeitgeist.
Whether you believe in extraterrestrials or not, there are lots of things to see and do in and around Roswell. And with World UFO Day on July 2 just on the horizon, now seems like the perfect time to explore this otherworldly destination.
