AAA Editor Notes

Prehistoric Gardens is 12 mi. s. on US 101 at mile marker 313. Set within a small coastal rain forest, the natural gardens have been attracting tourists since 1955 when the first life-size prehistoric creature was introduced. A great place to stop, take a break and stretch your legs while driving along US 101, this “Lost World” features paths under a dense forest canopy lined with ferns and native vegetation, and at every turn stands a new dinosaur replica. Educational signs are posted next to each animal. Pet friendly (call for restrictions/fees.). Picnicking is permitted.
$12; $10 (ages 60+); $8 (ages 3-12).
Hours: Daily 9-7 in summer; 10-5 in spring and fall (weather permitting). Hours may vary in winter; phone ahead to verify schedule. Allow 30 minutes minimum.
