Plymouth Rock is bullshit. Long before those marauding Pilgrims came over and memorialized a pebble, dinosaurs were exploring what is now Western Massachusetts. At Holyoke's Dinosaur Footprints reservation land, visitors feel like professional paleontologists instead of simp tourists. The public walking trails were first charted millions of years back by prehistoric pioneers who left monstrous tracks preserved in limestone along the Connecticut River Valley. For our money, hunting for fossils in the woods is a lot more fun than following "look but don't touch" rules at an indoor museum. Pack a picnic, your dog, and a vivid imagination. Plimoth Plantation will seem as historically enriching as trip to Mickey D's after an afternoon spent playing in Jurassic Park.
