Texas Top 40 No. 35, Glen Rose

Travelers make tracks to this idyllic hamlet to view prehistoric footprints in the Paluxy River at Dinosaur Valley State Park and the native and non-native species that roam the rolling hills at nearby Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. Known for its abundance of petrified- wood structures, Glen Rose also harbors a picturesque courthouse square, diverse shops, restaurants, and lodging, and a restored 19th-Century gristmill and surrounding buildings that serve as a museum of history and art.

“I enjoy checking out the shops and other area attractions, then topping it off with a live performance of The Promise at the Texas Amphitheatre.” —MELINDA SWINK, RAINBOW
