Quirky Tourist Attractions in or near California
While in California, you might enjoy a visit to:
"Death Trap of the Ages." Prehistoric animals, trapped in tar that bubbles out of the ground just east of Beverly Hills. One pit has a viewing platform with doomed fiberglass beasts. In the museum is a wall of 400 wolf skulls, and a glass-walled room with scientists cleaning the bones.
Giant doughnut atop Randy's Donuts is seen again and again on TV and in movies.
After much fanfare and tree carnage, the space shuttle has settled into its permanent post-mission berth in LA, alongside exhibits about cooking and going to the bathroom in zero gravity. Also here: the pickup truck that pulled the Shuttle through the city.
Caren and Carl share their unmatched collection of naked ladies, unicorns, African-Americans in love -- it's all on display. Was in Portland; reopened in LA in late 2013.
