ROAD TRIP WORTHY: Sleep With Dinosaurs at Colorado’s Prehistoric Hotel
Fans of Jurassic Park might want to spend a night at Colorado's prehistoric hotel and sleep with the dinosaurs.
Eddie, Jim Bob, and Butthead are just some of the dinosaurs featured at the Best Western Inn Denver Southwest. The hotel is home to quite a collection of dinosaur replicas and features.
Dinosaur skeletons, prehistoric murals, a stegosaurus statue in the lobby, a Jurassic Dig Pit for kids, a life-sized T-Rex painting, and Paleo Joe's Bar and Grill will make you think you are visiting Jurassic World.
This unique dinosaur-themed hotel is located at 3440 Vance Street in Lakewood and is just 10 minutes away from the Morrison Natural History Museum, home of the very first Stegosaurus fossil ever recovered in 1877. It's also close to Dinosaur Ridge, just off of C-470 on W. Alameda Parkway.
If you are looking for an inexpensive excursion for the kids and family, this dinosaur adventure is just a 4-hour mini-van road trip away.
