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.


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
