Got a Jurassic-loving junior on your hands? From dusting off old bones to learning what a Brachiosaurus ate, we’ve dug up some pint-sized paleontologist fun. Scroll through our slideshow to learn where to get the dirt on these giant creatures in and near San Diego.

LEGOLAND® Dinos

The name alone invites curious kids. Head out to LEGOLAND where little explorers can grab a bucket, jump in the sand and unearth dinosaur bones. Bigger kids can ride the Coastersaurus (36” and up). Swoop through the jungle, zoom past the Brachiosaurus and a Tricerotops scavenging for food. Get a dino-souvenir at the cool gift shop on Explorer Island.

Cost: $98/adult; $90/child
