Why do so many of us still gaze in wonder at dinosaurs, extinct for millions of years yet eternally fascinating? This episode explores the enduring appeal of these prehistoric beasts while visiting the delightfully nostalgic Dinosaur Land in Virginia.

I uncover the origins of dinosaur parks, from the first sculptures in London’s Crystal Palace in the 1800s to the concrete behemoths found along American roadsides. I share my visit to Dinosaur Land in Virginia, a homespun roadside attraction that started in the 1960s, and provide some dino theme attractions that may be closer to you. 

Tune in to discover:

  • The history and evolution of dinosaur parks from early sculptures to the animatronic marvels seen today
  • A firsthand visit to the delightfully retro Dinosaur Land park, a decades-old family business off the beaten path
  • Ideas for must-see dinosaur parks and roadside attractions across different states.
