La Brea Tar Pits


Watch as scientists dredge the legendary tar pits for fossils or just marvel at the stinky black goo that bubbles up in the middle of Los Angeles. Many will know it from the movie The Last Action Hero, featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger before he was California’s governor. While you’re there, visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. For more information, visit the La Brea Tar Pits website.
