One of America’s top Roadside Attractions. On our 280 mile drive to Las Cruces, New Mexico, along I-10 near Benson, Arizona we re-visited the mysterious roadside adventure called “The Thing”. We took the four kids here back in August 2009. The corridors held exhibits depicting the aliens that crashed at Roswell, New Mexico in July 1947 claiming they were real, it was a government conspiracy coverup & aliens have mixed with humanity. Thirty minutes later it ends with the body of “The Thing”. I can’t reveal what the Thing is or I would ruin you from visiting (but I did show a photo of it). This is a must stop must stop as admission is only $4. I did learn from staff, that nearby in the canyon (Photo#7) and in Benson, dozens of western movies were filmed here in the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s.
During the 400 mile drive that day we past several large dust devils in the hot blowing wind and passed a roadside attraction that I would like to come back and visit someday – the Gen. George Patton Museum in rural Arizona.
