Lin Ottinger's Moab Rock Shop is a must see whether your children are budding geologists or dinosaur aficionados. Often referred to as the dinosaur man, Lin Ottinger, is a well-known area rockhound. And his shop, chock-a-block with rocks, crystals and dinosaur bones, is a journey through Moab's history as well as a great place to hunt for unique Southeast Utah souvenirs. If you can peel the kids away from the minerals and fossils, draw their attention to the map 150 millions years of Canyonlands. Not only does it explain how to look for dinosaur bones it illustrates the findings in each layer of rock.
Getting There
 
Lin Ottinger's Moab Rock Shop is located at 600 North Main (Highway 191) on Moab's north side.
Things to Keep in Mind
 
Pick up a coupon for a free dinosaur bone found in the brochure racks situated around Moab.

When my daughter foundĀ a coupon for a free dinosaur bone in one of the brochure racks around Moab, Lin Ottinger's became a must stop. And she couldn't get there fast enough. The shop has thousands of rocks and fossils from Moab as well as other points around the world. Plan to spend at least an hour. If your children are anything like my 8-year-old daughter they will want to inspect each item on display.
