Welcome To Glen Rose
There’s so much to do and see, it’s the perfect place for a family vacation or a weekend getaway.
Glen Rose is known as the “Dinosaur Capital of Texas” and for good reason. Dinosaur Valley State Park contains some of the best preserved dinosaur tracks in the world. Another dinosaur attraction is Dinosaur World. It is Texas’s largest attraction dedicated to dinosaurs. Dinosaur World features life-size recreations in the forms of statues and animatronics. It also has a museum, fossil dig, and Boneyard playground.
Other top attractions include: Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, a world-renowned wildlife preserve featuring over a thousand threatened and endangered species from around the world, free roaming on 1,700 acres! If golf is your game plan to play a round at the top rated Squaw Valley Golf Club. Golf Digest Magazine gave Squaw Valley’s beautiful 36-holes of championship golf a 4½ out of 5 stars.
Go shopping in our historic Courthouse Square. Watch a rodeo or equestrian event at the Somervell County Expo Center. Explore one of our museums. Experience one of our festivals like the Paluxy Bluegrass Festival held the first weekend of April and October. Dine out at one of our many local owned or chain restaurants. Or just get some fresh air by going biking, swimming, hiking, or horseback riding.
So make sure to book your getaway at one of our bed & breakfasts, cabins, hotels, campgrounds or RV parks. Hope to see you soon!
