The Glen Rose center point is around the area of Downtown Glen Rose and the area of Somervell County Expo and Texas Amphitheatre.

Glen Rose, TX, the county seat of Somervell County, is located in the central part of the state. Glen Rose spans fewer than 3 square miles and is home to just over 2,500 residents. The area was first settled in 1849 when a trading post was opened, followed by a three-story grist mill and in 1874, a post office. Somervell County was formed the following year. Throughout the early 20th century, Glen Rose was home to many doctors and healers who were drawn by the town's mineral springs; it was also known as the Whiskey Woods Capital of the State for its thriving moonshine trade during Prohibition.

Although Glen Rose's employment levels were affected by the Great Depression, the town later benefited from a new water and sewer system thanks to the New Deal. The population peaked in 1950 but rebounded with the construction of a nuclear power plant in the mid-1970s, which became, and remains, a cornerstone of the local economy. Today, this fossil-rich area is known as the Dinosaur Capital of Texas, which makes it a fun place to visit with the entire family.

Best Time to Travel to Glen Rose, TX

U.S. News and World Report recommends traveling to the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area (which includes Glen Rose) from September to November for the most pleasant weather, lightest crowds, and lower hotel prices. The Texas State Fair is also held in the fall. If you don't mind temperatures in the 50s and 60s, visit in January or February for true bargains. Both hotel prices and temperatures peak in the summer, so plan accordingly.

Glen Rose also hosts fun events throughout the year, so planning around those will affect your travel schedule. Bluegrass fans should plan to visit the first weekend in April, when the annual Spring Bluegrass Festival is held on Paluxy River, or in September for the Gospel Grass Festival, which features spirituals performed in true bluegrass fashion.
