Our home is close to New Mexico Military Institute and a five minute drive from downtown Roswell as well as a 20 minute drive from Bottomless Lakes. Roswell is a good location for day trips to the Carlsbad Caverns, historic Lincoln County attractions, White Sands Monument and the the 1947 UFO incident crash site. It's also close to Ruidoso attractions such as Ski Resorts, Horse Races, Casinos and great camping & hiking locations. Safe, upscale area. Great place for couples and solo adventurers.
