Dino Weekend in Connecticut - Continued

Yesterday I spoke about our 1st day in Connecticut and our visit to the Peabody Museum. After we left the museum we went to a nice Irish pub called Anna Liffey's for dinner about 4 or 5 blocks away (I forgot to mention yesterday bring lots of change for the parking meters .25/15 min). Afterwards we went to the Lowe's off of Exit 8 to get plaster of Paris for our Track Casting that we would be making at Dinosaur State Park in Rock Hill CT. Then onto our Hotel in Cromwell The Comfort Inn. You may be able to get a great rate here ($70-80) and they do have a decent continental breakfast, high speed Internet, and a friendly staff but it was not clean we tried 3 rooms before we found one that didn't smell musty and our daughters socks got black from walking on the rug. The hotel was very close (5 miles) from Dinosaur State Park.

We arrived out Dinosaur State Park with our Items to make the Track Casting. We started our day making the track casting, definitely the highlight of the day. Indoors under the Dome you will find Dinosaur Tracks, Life Size Triassic and Jurassic Dioramas, an auditorium were movies are shown throughout the day, interactive discovery center, and gift shop. The park has a program of Movies and Activities constantly happening. The Activities we did while at the park an animal feeding, movie, Trackway Talk, Nature Walk, and Touch Cart with Fossils, rocks, and minerals.

Saturday, August 16, 2008 is Dinosaur State Park Day with special events on tap.
If you get out to the event please let us know how it was. Dinosaur State Park is a unique experience in that you get to take home a Dilophosaurus Footprint and See where these Dinosaurs actually Walked 200 million years ago. It is one of the largest dinosaur track sites in North America.
