For those of you who speak Spanish, The La Brea Tar Pits is quite a redundant name, but I assure you, “The La Brea Tar Pits” is how we refer to it here. (For my non-Spanish speakers, “La Brea” means “The Tar,” so when you call them The La Brea Tar pits, you’re saying “The The Tar Tar Pits.” Fun fact.)
I’m always on the hunt for local places to explore that are inexpensive to visit, and I’ll be honest, this one pushed my budget a little over the edge. La Brea is located a mile away from The Grove, for those of you familiar with the area. I frequently park in a Beverly Hills neighborhood and walk when I visit The Grove to evade the high price of parking.
