Things to do in Roswell

While Roswell may be well known as the crash site of an apparent UFO in 1947, there is more to New Mexico’s fifth largest city than alien conspiracy theories. From the Bottomless Lakes State Park or the Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge, to a variety of museums, galleries and cafes and cantinas serving authentic New Mexican cuisine, Roswell is a destination offering comfortable living with opportunities to explore and experience the true Southwest.


Roswell Climate

Whereas temperatures can climb up to 100 degrees during the peak of summer in the lower elevations, daytime highs average only in the 70s in the mountains. Most of the southern desert part of the state will only receive 10 inches or less of precipitation, while twice as much precipitation will fall in higher elevations. Relatively low humidity and more than 300 days of sun are just two more reasons residents take advantage of a variety of outdoor activities.
