Better yet, drive over to Connecticut and visit Dinosaur State Park. Thousands of dino prints in situ!

Yes, you beat me to it! Connecticut’s own “Jurassic Park”!
Dinosaur State Park and Arboretum is a state-owned natural history preserve occupying 80 acres in the town of Rocky Hill, Connecticut. The state park protects one of the largest dinosaur track sites in North America. Its Jurassic-era sandstone-embedded fossil tracks date from about 200 million years ago. http://www.dinosaurstatepark.org/
Wonderful place to visit. I was fortunate enough to live in CT not far from there at the time of the discovery of the extensive tracks during a construction project.
