Description

The La Brea Tar Pits are a physical formation in Los Angeles resulting from tens of thousands of year’s worth of tar seeping up from reserves far below the earth’s surface. The pits are a goldmine of preserved remains of ancient animals that fell into and then could not escape from the tar. Many of these remains are housed in the George C. Page museum, which is dedicated to exhibiting the many treasures found within the pits. The entire tar pits complex is a very popular destination for tourists and locals alike, especially those with young children.
