‘Roswell is a city in New Mexico, located along Route 66. Travel Bug dropped in to uncover 3 fascinating facts about Roswell on his road trip…’

Apart from its small town charm, sun, and friendly residents, Roswell is most famous for being the site of an alleged UFO crash in 1947. These are Travel Bug’s 3 Fascinating Facts about Roswell…

The city is now synonymous with all things extra terrestrial, and you’re hard pushed to go anywhere without bumping into a little green man, even if he is just the statue in your hotel lobby.

The Travel Bug was a bit reluctant to go exploring around Roswell because he thought he might get abducted by aliens or end up stuck in the Upside Down.  He watches Netflix – he knows what’s going on in the world…


Travel Bug knew he would have to investigate the whole UFO thing.  A bit like the boys he saw on Stranger Things, he got on his bike and pedalled to Hawkins Laboratory….

He actually went to the UFO Museum. Also; he didn’t pedal.  He made his humans drive him there so no one could abduct him on the way…

Anyway, he found out that back in 1947, a long time before Travel Bug was born, that a local rancher found unidentified debris on his land.

The rancher was sure he’d found a UFO, but the Government insisted it was just a weather balloon.  The incident has led to more than 50 years of speculation about the existence of aliens and how the US Government *really* know about them…

Travel Bug doesn’t much like aliens, but he does prefer them to demogorgons….


Travel Bug LOVES his carne.  He found out that McDonald’s in Roswell is VERY famous, so he had to go see.  He was a little bit disappointed to find out that it’s the building, not the burgers that it’s famous for.

Roswell is the only McDonald’s in the world that doesn’t have the normal building design. McDonald’s in Roswell is in the shape of a spaceship!

Travel Bug and his humans thought it was rather cool. They gave a big thumbs (and tiny bug arms) up to McDonald’s for getting involved in the local community.


This park in Roswell has a piece of the Berlin Wall in it. Travel Bug initially wondered if someone stole it from Germany. The local bugs told him that the German Army actually presented it to the American Military.

The city then put it on display so that little bugs and their humans could come and see it. Roswell has a long history of military action and training and the wall section was a thank you to the US from the people of Germany.

Roswell was also the home and take off station of the infamous Enola Gay aircraft…
