In North America there are two locations that seem to be good for finding dinosaur bones. These places are Dinosaur National Monument (in the Colorado/Utah area) and Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta, Canada. Spain is a third site that has yielded many dinosaur bones, many of which were found during a dig to construct a high speed rail line.
One area in North America is the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles, California. This is an area where tar naturally seeps up to the surface of the Earth. The tar obviously mixes with water when it rains and so ancient animals used to think that they could use the water.
However, the tar usually caused them to get stuck and sink, which then preserved their fossils!
Dinosaur fossils have been found world-wide where areas of Mesozoic sediment is easily excavated. The only area that seems to be discluded is Antarctica. Large concentrations of fossils are found in CO, UT and CA like already mentioned, but they have also been found in Montana and the desert SW.
