Just off Interstate 10 to Cabazon, a visitor attraction can be spotted that may not be so well known to people. The Dinosaur Truck Stop is starting to get some attention due to the two huge dinosaurs built by an innkeeper, Claude Bell. One of the structures holds a museum in its belly which is something quite interesting.

Though there is a small parking or admission fee, the whole place is such an interesting sight that it is definitely worth the price. Don't forget your camera!

50770 Seminole Dr, Cabazon, CA 92230, USA

Price:
There is an admission price.

Opening Hours:
Daily.

How to get there:
