Why locals love it

This is one of the most historical places in Los Angeles. The tar pits are preserved and one of the most famous fossil findings in the area as well. Thanksfully, they have preserved the pits and turned them into a historical museum for anyone interested.

Why you should visit it

While there are several statues of dinosaurs at the tar pits, there are not actual dinosaurs at this location because they were extinct by the time the pits arose. Moreover, there have been interesting historical fossils found here over the years.

Special tip

There is the page museum at the tar pits that observe the findings of the tar pits over the years.
