If you go a little beyond the Extraterrestrial Highway, you'll find another space-themed gem: Lunar Crater National Natural Landmark. Full disclosure: it wasn't formed by a UFO, or even by a meteor. The volcanic crater got its name because it looks like the surface of the moon... and I could totally see homesick Martians stopping by the barren desert formation to see some familiar landscapes.
