Given the vastness out the universe, I think it's likely that there is other life out there. I doubt that we have been, or ever will be, visited by other intelligent life.
The chance of any life that exists being intelligent enough to achieve interstellar travel is very small.
The chance of any life that exists having visited us in our cosmologically small human existence is very small.
The chance of any life that exists choosing to visit this insignificant part of the universe is very small.
The chance that, even if another lifeform could achieve interstellar travel, they'd want to come to Earth, "the universe's North Dakota" is very small*
