I bought a Groupon (my first one! I’m so behind the times) for a Dinosaur Park outside of Austin. It was pretty dang cheap and I figured it would be a fun outdoor outing that both kids would enjoy. The oldest isn’t liking all my planned explorations anymore, which breaks my heart. He wants to stay home and do other stuff while I’m internally screaming ‘No! You are still a little boy who loves hanging out with his mom!”.
We made the trip last weekend and everyone enjoyed it. The park bills itself as an outdoor museum, complete with 24 life size replica dinosaurs, as well as other various reptiles. The dinosaurs range in size from 2 feet long to 85 feet long. Each one is painted and looks pretty legit.
You enter through the gift shop, then make your way down the trail. It’s tree lined with lots of shade and easy to follow. Each dinosaur has a sign that tells what it is, along with different facts and features.
