Glen Rose is best known as the “Dinosaur Capital of Texas,” but Glen Rose has been a popular tourist destination since the early 1900s and provides the perfect destination for families, or people just wanting a taste of small town Texas.
In addition to the beautiful scenery, rolling hills and rivers, Glen Rose offers several family-friendly attractions including Dinosaur Valley State Park Dinosaur World and Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, just to name a few. Also, be sure and visit our Historic Courthouse Square. Home to charming shops, restaurants and historic inns, it provides a nostalgic feel, that few towns can still claim.
In additional to the natural beauty, visitors will find opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, kayaking, canoeing or just kicking back and enjoying nature.
