The flash, the cash and oh, the style – welcome to LA’s poshest borough. Even if you haven’t visited this celebrity city-within-a-city before, you may feel like you already know it from cameo appearances in movies. Legendary Rodeo Drive and neighboring streets are bursting with high-end boutiques and bistros.
Shopping brings most people to Beverly Hills, but there’s also the chance to spot real-life Hollywood stars. Drop by the Paley Center for Media to watch classic TV show pilots or attend a public talk with today’s hottest screen personalities. To eavesdrop on actors and their agents doing lunch and swilling cocktails, make your way to the Polo Lounge at the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel, aka “The Pink Palace.”
Staying in Beverly Hills puts you conveniently close to a variety of other LA neighborhoods worth exploring. Hit West Hollywood’s art galleries and fashion-forward shops. Nearby, LA’s Mid-City is anchored by The Grove shopping center, the Original Farmers Market and several museums, including the inspiring Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
