On a recent road trip through New Mexico, I decided to stop in Roswell. I’ve always been curious about the UFO and alien conspiracy theories that made this tiny desert town famous. I figured that the only attraction worth visiting would be its kitschy International UFO Museum.
Turns out, I was wrong. Something else pretty “out of this world” captured my attention. And no, it wasn’t an extraterrestrial sighting. It was the local McDonald’s. It’s the only one in the world designed like a UFO.
This got me wondering: What other bizarre McDonald’s locations exist around the world? In its quest for global fast-food domination, McDonald’s has opened more than 34,000 restaurants in 119 countries. And yes, some reside in unexpected places.
Below are among the most curious. They serve up a special side of ambience, transforming an otherwise run-of-the-mill fast-food stop into a unique memory. It'll supersize your fast food experience.
