Glen Rose provides the perfect destination for families, or people just wanting a taste of small town Texas.

Glen Rose is best known as the “Dinosaur Capital of Texas,” but is much more than that. Glen Rose has been a popular tourist destination since the early 1900s.

In addition to the beautiful scenery, rolling hills and rivers, the Glen Rose area had hundreds of natural springs. Water flowed from the springs and were heavily laden with minerals and believed to have healing powers. Glen Rose is still a popular tourist destination with the rolling hills and rivers, but we have added several family attractions over the years 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 quaint shops, restaurants and lodging, it provides a the feel of a nostalgic feel, that few towns can still claim. As for those hills and rivers that first put Glen Rose on the map, they are still here. In additional to the natural beauty, visitors will find opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, kayaking, canoeing or just kicking back and enjoying a sunset.
