Our segment on Better Connecticut this week was all about Dinosaur State Park located right in Rocky Hill. We got a chance to check out the REAL dinosaur footprints that were discovered there in 1966 and share with Melissa Cole why we think this destination is such a great learning place for children (and adults too!).
There was still snow on the ground the day we taped at the park so we weren’t able to venture out onto the trails, but we also chatted about the trail system at the park and the variety of outdoor activities available there too.
