It’s almost time to bring your flower crowns out of retirement. Festival season is quickly approaching. And while everyone knows about Coachella and Governor’s Ball, Bonnaroo and Lollapolooza, there are plenty of other festivals happening around the United States that’ll inspire you to dance in the streets (or open field, or parking lot)–and just might be a bit closer to home.

The sippable sibling of everyone’s favorite frozen treat is definitely making a big name for itself on the NYC streets, and we have the scoop on some of the best over-the-top options that’ll bring all of the boys to your yard (if you’re lucky enough to have one in such a crowded city).
What could otherwise be a boring highway that runs from one side of the country to the other has thankfully been turned in a weird wonderland for those traveling the distance.

Roswell, New Mexico, is the fifth-largest city in New Mexico. An otherwise unassuming city, originally home to farmers and ranchers and industrial workers, Roswell came to be part of the country’s general consciousness when, in 1947, an air force surveillance balloon crashed at a ranch and prompted witnesses to believe an UFO had touched down and was subsequently covered up. An event now known as the Roswell Incident. Whether or not you believe this long-held conspiracy theory, Roswell is definitely worth a visit (but especially if you have a thing for aliens).
