UPDATE: I screwed up with the pet policy at Dinosaur Land. They aren't allowed in the park or gift shop so a few of us have volunteered to puppy sit dogs in the parking lot to give everyone a chance to tour the park and gift shop. Sorry!
Added Route Map and Route Sheet.
With a focus on some family and pet friendly destinations!
Stop 1: Dinosaur Land - http://dinosaurland.com/ - Open for 50 years, this roadside attraction features over 50 dinosaurs, inviting visitors to step into the world of the prehistoric past, turning back the pages of time to the Mesozoic era, when dinosaurs were the only creatures that roamed the earth.
PET POLICY FOR DINOSAUR LAND: Dogs aren't allowed in this park. Sorry about that, my mistake! A few of us have volunteered to puppy sit in the parking lot to give everyone a chance to tour the park and gift shop.
Stop 2: Marker Miller Orchard - http://www.markermillerorchards.com/
Relax while sitting on the front porch in our rocking chairs and enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery. Or go on an adventure, by purchasing containers and going out to pick your very own fruits and vegetables (check for availability throughout the season). We have many picnic tables, so feel free to pack a lunch or purchase food from our food building when it is open (every weekend August-October). Inside the market there are a variety of products to choose from and don’t forget to check out our bakery and the apple cider donuts. Wrap up your visit with a stop by our “Sweets Shop” where you can select from fresh made fudge, hand dipped ice cream, or cider slushees.
PET POLICY FOR MARKER MILLER ORCHARD: Dogs are not allowed inside the market, but are welcome on the rest of the property. Please make sure they are on a leash at all times and provide cleanup when needed.
