While my mother was out visiting we had the opportunity to visit the La Brea Tar Pits for the first time. What a interesting place. So many prehistoric bones have been found in these tar pits. We had a great time exploring the area.
The park has beautiful grounds and you are able to tour at your leisure. There are signs that explain every exhibit to help guide you on your own. They do have tours during certain hours but we wanted to do it on our own. We did the grounds first. My reasoning was because it was still early in the day and cool I figured the later in the day the warmer so by then we would want in the air conditioning. LOL There are lots of benches along the paths and inside. Plenty of places to rest and take in the beautiful area.
Inside we found really nice exhibits The staff was very friendly and helpful. They even had maps of where you can find food. There is not a place to eat inside.
The Atrium is beautiful.
This is a small dent in the exhibits. Can you imagine? All these creatures found in those pits and on that property!! Its pretty amazing how old they are.
They still dig on that propery and they are still finding prehistoric animals.
If you visit plan on staying several hours. There is plenty to do and see. The grounds are beautiful. If you have small children have a picnic or if your adults have a picnic and enjoy the outdoors. There is plenty of places and plenty of shaded areas. By the way the parking fills up fast so get there early. If you don’t, you have to pay to park and it can cost you $20.
There is lots of stuff within walking distance also, like the LA Museum of art, the Urban light exhibit, the Peterson Museum, the Sag (Screen Actors Guild) Awards building is across the street, and several other museums.
All and All it was a very fun day. As we were exploring I came across this on the sidewalk. I loved it and took a picture of it.
We have one planet. We need to take care of it. We need to preserve our history and our local city, State and National Parks. Love the Earth! It is our home.
I hope you all enjoyed the visit today.
Until Next time.
