Beverly Hills is the closest physical embodiment of Hollywood glamour from Rodeo Drive, probably the wealthiest and most famous shopping district in the world, to some of the world’s top restaurants such as; Spago, The Grill, the Polo Lounge, Trader Vic’s and Planet Hollywood.
Things to do in Beverly Hills
A must do is a coach, walking and tram tours of film stars’ homes.
Although it’s only some three blocks in size, Rodeo Drive is perhaps the most famous shopping district in the world, with the most exclusive and indeed what is supposed to be the single most expensive shop in the world, Bijan. Visits by appointment only. The ornate architecture and cobbled streets of Via Rodeo and the fountains of Two Rodeo are some of the key tourist destinations and make for great photo opportunities. It’s also worth noting that most shops are closed on a Sunday and gazing only at their closed shutters does not make for a great visit. Be sure to drive north to Rodeo’s residential area to the leafy suburban areas between Santa Monica Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard, which make a beautiful contrast to the cosmopolitan streets of Rodeo Drive.
