“Kids love learning about dinosaurs, especially at the Wall of Bones,” said Lesha Coltharp, director of tourism for Dinosaurland. “It’s the best way to make a vacation both fun and educational.”
The 210,000-acre monument, which is celebrating its centennial this year, houses dinosaur skeletons in its Quarry Exhibit Hall, and has a Wall of Bones that features the remains of at least 100 intertwined dinosaurs. The fossils have been there an estimated 149 million years.
Other area attractions include a natural history museum and a Dinosaur Garden with life-sized dinosaur replicas. Red Fleet State Park is covered with hundreds of three-toed dinosaur tracks.
The Dinosaur Diamond National Scenic Byway takes motorists on a 512-mile loop to see excavations, petroglyphs and wilderness. For information, visit dinoland.com.
