It began in July, 1934 when a group of farmers drove their trucks onto a large parcel of empty land at the corner of Third and Fairfax Streets in Los Angeles. They then produced their produce, displaying it on their truck’s tailgates. Today, the Original Farmers Market still offers fresh produce along with unique shops and diverse restaurants.

L.A. Tar Pits
Rancho La Brea is one of the world’s most famous fossil localities, recognized for having the largest and most diverse assemblage of extinct Ice Age flora and fauna in the world. Visitors can learn about Los Angeles as it was during the last Ice Age, when prehistoric beasts roamed the Los Angeles Basin. Through windows at the Page Museum Laboratory, visitors can watch paleontologists examining pleistocene relics. Replicas of woolly mammoths and tyrannosaurus rex punctuate the Hancock Park landscape adjacent to the tar pits. An educational must for the entire family.
