In 1947, a US Air Force weather balloon crashed near the city–however, ufologists claim that the crash was an alien spacecraft and that the government covered up the incident! Roswell still attracts UFO and alien enthusiasts who love to explore the ufology museums, alien-themed iconography, and gift stores that sell tons of items with little green men. The city as a lot to offer so whether you are intrigued by UFOs or are traveling to the area to partake in the city’s other attractions, read on for our picks of the best Airbnb vacation rentals in Roswell, New Mexico.

A city for those with their eyes on the skies

Aside from its UFO fame, Roswell is also visited by those who are interested in rocketry and aerospace engineering. The city was where Robert Goddard, one of the pioneers of spaceflight, did much of his rocketry work in the 1930s and you can see a recreation of his work at Roswell Museum and Art Center. You can also learn more about Roswell’s involvement with aviation and spaceflight at the Walker Aviation Museum. No matter why you’re visiting Roswell, you’re guaranteed to have a good stay at one of the Airbnbs on our list.
