I just walked around this, but I let my traveling friends no that this was a really nice place and right next to the LA Holocaust museum. Nice place to walk around, exercise, and was nicely maintained.
We only walked around the grounds and did not go into the museum. Walking around the grounds is free. You can pay to park at the museum or park on the streets, but be very careful with the parking signs as you can get towed...More
Of course the tar pits existed long before the city but I was intrigued by this on-going dig site in the heart of the LA metroplex. The tar pits are mere blocks from Wilshire Blvd and just a few miles from Rodeo Drive. The thousands...More
Definitely worth checking out. Very interesting and surprising that these pits actually exist...in the middle of the city! Very informative. Neat to see them bubbling. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because the kids were only interested so long.
We walked through the park after spending several hours in LACMA. Took a look at the museum from the rise outside but it was closed at that time. We tried a short cut through the huge La Brea housing complex across the road and found...More
You can walk right over from the Museum of Art. Nice trees and park to sit and unwind. We enjoyed the Tar Pit but will save that museum for another day. There's a line of food trucks across the street that are very good and...More
The La Brea Tar Pits are a treasure right in the heart of Los Angeles. Part of the original Spanish land grant, Rancho La Brea, the city now owns it and conducts digs there to this day.
It is in Museum Row near Wilshire and...More
If you walk to the park, it's free to see the various pits and active excavation sites. If you drive, the parking is $12 which is not outrageous. Lots of informative signs. Best part about he main pit is seeing the methane bubble up. Overall,...More

So last time we stayed in an Apartment in West Hollywood at Park La Brea and...More

Will you have a car?
L.A. 4 nights early July with kids, -where to stay? (12 Replies)
Hi, We are planning four nights in L.A. with kids aged 10 and 12. We are arriving from San Diego, Anaheim and Sequia Ntl. Forest and will by the time we arrive in L.A. have visited Disneyland, SeaWorld and San Diego Zoo. I am planning to return the rental car upon arrival in L.A. and instead rely on public transport and taxi services. Is this a good idea? In L.A. we will do the walk of fame, celebrety tour etc. Me might spend a day at Universal Studio (but that will remain optional)....More

Having a car in LA is almost always better and more convenient than relying on public transportation, LA is the one city where you want to have a car if at all possible. If having a car in LA would break the budget, consider skipping it in San Diego or Anaheim, especially if the car's going to be sitting at theme park parking lots all day. Being on the coast, Santa Monica is not as central as some inland areas but it is the most central of the coastal areas. But you would spend a lot of...More
