The glitzy image of Los Angeles, California, may have originated in Hollywood, but it now lives on in the upscale shops, five-star dining and celebrity sightings of Beverly Hills. If you want a holiday filled with glamour, you need to travel to 90210.
Things to Do in Beverly Hills
Haute couture is the name of the game in Beverly Hills, and Rodeo Drive is the centre of it all. It’s home to more than 100 name-brand designers, plus luxury Beverly Hills hotels and LA’s top restaurants. If you’re more of a browser than an all-out baller, you can still dream on the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style. Start at the iconic (or, some might say, creepy) “Torso” statue at the south end of Rodeo and walk north to find your favourite fashion icons.
When you get to the north end of the street with empty pockets, head east on Santa Monica Boulevard to find the iconic Beverly Hills sign, plus other art installations, in Beverly Gardens Park. Hold up all those bags, snap a new profile pic and you’ll really be living the LA lifestyle. Then drop the bags at your Beverly Hills hotel and hit the town for the evening.
Getting To & Around Beverly Hills
Wherever your Los Angeles hotel is located, you’ll fly into the sprawling LAX airport. To get to Beverly Hills accommodation from the terminal, you can catch nonstop FlyAway bus service to UCLA, then hail a cab for the short remaining ride. There are also shuttle services to and from the airport; or, go like a local and accept the California car culture: Wotif’s car hire options are a good place to start.
