At a Glance

Journey to Utah with your grandchild and go back in time tens of millions of years on this action-packed dinosaur adventure. Lose yourself in the prehistoric world and become a paleontologist as park rangers, scientists and other experts join you at museums and archaeological sites filled with dinosaur bones and the remnants of ancient civilizations. Watch your grandchild becomes a Junior Ranger at Dinosaur National Monument, dig for fossils together and share an overnight in a dinosaur museum. Take home a range of other Utah memories to cherish forever, from carvings made in canyon walls by people who lived 1,000 years ago to a ranch owned by one of Butch Cassidy’s Wild Bunch to whitewater rafting down the famous Split Mountain Gorge on the Green River.
