Civil War tourism at its finest

Planning to do some heritage touring in the Shenandoah Valley?  Looking for that one-of-a-kind stop to make your itinerary complete?  Consider Dinosaur Kingdom in Natural Bridge, VA.  Here’s a description from RoadsideAmerica.com:

As the tour begins, visitors are asked to imagine themselves in 1863. A family of Virginia paleontologists has accidentally dug a mine shaft into a hidden valley of living dinosaurs. Unfortunately, the Union Army has tagged along, hoping to kidnap the big lizards and use them as “weapons of mass destruction” against the South.

Finally, a site where I can indulge my affinity for prehistoric reptiles and my interest in history at the same time.  There are more details and photos available here.
