Town of Mars.

Mars Flying Saucer

The Flying Saucer is cool, and a block away the historical society/train museum has some wacky decorations (statue, etc.), murals, and a Mars gift shop (closed on our visit) that looks to have some cool souvenirs.

Flying Saucer in Town Named Mars

While taking the back roads you will see where the aliens landed in Mars, the Roswell of Pennsylvania. It was easy to find; they left behind their spaceship. It sits at the corner of Pittsburgh and Grant.

Flying saucer of Mars.

Flying Saucer in Town Named Mars

Cute little town, easily accessible off 79. Parking is to your right, at the Pittsburgh Street/Grand Ave intersection. The saucer is to your left (We had to circle the block once, as the saucer was hidden by shrubbery). The building behind it has a creative sign, and take note of the random wood post with the statement "MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH."
