Penn Dixie is the place to go if you are looking to dig for treasure! And honestly, you hardly even need to dig. 99% of the fossils I found today, I did not dig for. It's a relaxing place to go dig in the dirt and bring home some amazing history. I love going there just for myself and my kids love going there too. The staff is always helpful and friendly too. So happy to have gotten this groupon!

Our grandchildren had a great time looking for fossils. They were well prepared to know what they were looking for and where to look for specific ones. We are glad we went and look forward to going next year. Our friend told us they were there for over right hours

From Our Editors

At the heart of Penn Dixie is a fossil quarry—one that's so prolific it captures the attention of science buffs from around the world. But this isn't a look-and-don't-touch kind of quarry. At this 54-acre site, visitors are encouraged to dig into what was once a shallow ocean environment (380 million years ago) and to keep the fossils they find. The visitors' center even offers buckets of tools available to rent. Once they're finished with their paleontological expeditions, guests can spend the rest of their day exploring nature trails and wetlands and spotting wildlife such as bald eagles and red-tailed hawks.
