Off-beat:The Cabazon Dinosaurs; General Patton Memorial

The Cabazon Dinosaurs

This is the home of the larger than life concrete dinosaur replicas.
Dino and Rex have been an attraction since Claude K. Bell began sculpting them in the late 1960's. The statues were in the 1984 film Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, and have been featured in several other movies.
Dino's belly houses a gift shop and both preside over a 60-acre site that includes the Wheel Inn restaurant off Interstate 10 to the east of Casino Morongo and the Desert Hills Premium Outlets.
