About Roswell, NM
Roswell is a unique city with a cozy community feel, a unique culture, and home to some of the best sunsets in the Southwest. A winter ski trip is always within a few hours’ drive and natural hot springs are sprinkled throughout the state. Roswell has plenty of natural attractions in or near the area. Some of the most notable are Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge, Bottomless Lakes State Park, Carlsbad Caverns National Park, and White Sands National Monument. The location is ideal for fishing, hiking, swimming, and biking. The best part is that the state of New Mexico is a lesser known treasure; with a low cost of living and housing, a variety of cuisine to explore, and traffic mild enough to get across town in 15 minutes.
