Visitor Tips and News About Traffic Circle Dinosaur
Quiet little town, but worth the detour to see "Errrma." And it's walking distance from "Mike" the headless chicken![Pat Jones, 04/26/2010]
Dinosaur Statue in Dinosaur Park, Fruita, CO. Very easy to spot. In the center of downtown at the main park in the town circle.[Judy Carter, 07/19/2003]
Oh yeah, that's a ba-a-a-d looking dinosaur... could almost be mistaken for an inflatable.
Check out this little town, whose funky motif is the dinosaur. Their park is dedicated to the creature and its fun just to stop for lunch. Check out the Dinosaur Cafe on the main drag close to the park for excellent, well prepared lunches that could satisfy anyone. Afterwards, check out the old fashioned candy store where the old fashioned bank used to be. Fruita is 18 miles west of Grand Juncton on I-70.[benji, 07/21/1997]
