Jurrasic Park fans, listen up! A small town in Canada is known as the “Dinosaur Capital of the World” and it’s home to more prehistoric creatures than you could possibly imagine.

Drumheller is a small town in Alberta, and while it’s under a two-hour drive from Calgary, you’ll feel like you’re a million miles away due to the enormous canyons, stunning rock formations and a huge collection of dinosaurs.

The town is home to thousands of prehistoric fossils and there are over 30 dinosaur statues that are dotted throughout the valley.

While you’re visiting, you can also take a look at the “World’s Largest Dinosaur,” a massive Tyrannosaurus Rex which towers at 25 metres. If you dare, you can climb right up into the mouth of the T-Rex for views of the town below.
