Dig for Dinosaurs
Most kids (and adults) love dinosaurs, and to make their wildest dreams come true, head to Fruita, Colorado. The Museum of Western Colorado offers Dino Digs for children ages five and older. You can choose from one-, three-, and five-day expeditions. Kids work alongside professional paleontologists as they search for new bones and tracks at the 150-million-year-old dig site, which extends into Utah. “Imagine how your child will feel when she helps unearth the fossilized bones of ancient species,” says Outside magazine. Digs start at $125 per person; https://www.museumofwesternco.com/things-to-do/dino-digs/.
