WACO – Weighing in on a weighty subject, the Expedia travel site recently included Waco on its list of “America’s Top Dinosaur Destinations​.”

Though the list is not ranked, Expedia chose just seven destinations. 

Waco soared to the acknowledgement not on the wings of pterodactyl, a flying reptile, but on the reputation and worldwide attraction of the Waco Mammoth National Monument

“Technically, we do not have dinosaurs. We have mammals. They were off by about 65 million years,” said Reagan King, site director at the Waco Mammoth National Monument.

“But the recognition is cool, and to a kid, every bone in the ground is a dinosaur.”

The dig on the city’s outskirts became part of the National Park System in July 2015.​

Admission to the attraction located at 6220 Steinbeck Bend Dr. is free, but adults pay $5 for tours, while toddlers under the age of three pay nothing. Discounts are available to older children and seniors.
