Roswellites welcome you!

 

 

The main attraction for visitors in the UFO museum at Main St. and Second St.

 

 

Get your fill of UFO and Alien shopping!

 

 

Aliens welcome!

 

 

Convention Center on Main Street

 

 

And state and city administrative buildings

 

 

Visit the planetarium and Robert Goddard rocket workshop

 

 

Another public sculpture on Main Street

 

 

The visitor center on Main and so is banking.

 

 

All the realtor offices are on Main, including Re/Max, Century 21, Prudential and Exit Realty.

 

 

Cattle Baron is one of the best places for steak in town and among the pricest.  It was succulent!

 

 

All the fast food restaurants are here, including Wendy's.

 

 

Spacey McDonald's

 

 

Super Sonic fast service, plus others such as Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and the Pancake House.

All you can eat was wonderful at Corral Garden (American) and there's Chinese buffet elsewhere.

 

 

Some of the signage on Main can be overbearing.

 

 

But you can find refuge from it and a bit of shade if you walk long enough.  It's 32 blocks between
the Super 8 motel up north to the UFO museu m.  I know!

 

 

It's a peaceful and shady walk along Richardson Street, which runs parallel with Main Street on
its west side.

 

 

But E. Virginia Street, parallel with Main Street on its east side, is hot, commercial and well,
looks like this!

 

 

Being in Roswell, one can't getaway from UFO notions, like this broken concrete sidewalk that looks like something
fell out of the sky and crashed into it.

 

 

 

So, until we meet again, so long dear Roswell.  And for you, dear Web visitor, confront your deepest fears and VISIT ROSWELL!   May The Force be with you!
