Ogden's George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park

Utah was once a dinosaur stomping ground. Triceratops, parasaurolophus and the Utahraptor (larger than the velociraptor) were the primary residents. Now, all that's left are their bones.

But at Ogden's George S. Eccle's Dinosaur Park, you can see these prehistoric creatures as full-sized sculptures. More than 100 sculptures are along the park's trails. Feel free to get photos of yourself hugging an alasaurus on your stroll. Along with the park itself, there's the Stewart Museum, which has full-sized dinosaur skeletons, robotic dinosaurs and a stegosaurus skeleton dig for kids to play paleontologist.

For those living in Weber County, this was an obvious addition to our How to be a Utahn series. For those further south, make sure to check it out this spring if you havent' already.

On April 20, a class on Dinosaurs and Funky Forensics will be held at the park at 9 a.m. The park will also party for its 20th birthday. 1544 E. Park Boulevard, Ogden, 801-393-3466, dinosaurpark.org
