Whether you are a local, or a visiting tourist, it can be hard to wrap your mind around all of the places to see in Los Angeles. LA has so much to offer, and I feel blessed to have grown up here. I thought it would be a great idea to offer my top 5 things to do in many of the different Los Angeles areas. The first area I have decided to cover is the 90210, or better known as Beverly Hills. Many tourists know the area from the hit TV show or even the CW network remake. Beverly Hills is known for its spectacular homes and neighborhoods (many occupied by celebrities) as well as its ritzy high end shopping. I have put together my top 5 things to do here.
Beverly Hills Hotel (9641 Sunset Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90210)
Constructed in 1912, the Beverly Hills Hotel is one of the most famous and iconic hotels in the world. Although you will most likely not be staying here, it is definitely worth driving by. It is a common lunch spot for many celebrities and socialites. The property is covered in palm trees and bouganveilla, and the hotel its self is a peachy pink. Be sure to drive by and snap a photo of this iconic hotel.
Beverly Gardens Park (Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90210)
You cannot go all the way to the 902010 without stopping by the Beverly Gardens Park. Be sure to get a photo at the famous Beverly Hills Sign and Lily Pond (like my photos above) located between N. Canon Drive and N. Beverly Drive. Beverly Gardens Park is about 20 blocks long and has s a two-mile jogging path,that connects the residential parts of Beverly Hills to other parts of the city along Santa Monica Blvd. If you happen to be here on the 3rd weekend of May or October, be sure to check out The Beverly Hills Art Show which features many local artists and draws huge crowds each year!
Local tip: the parking around the park is all metered so be prepared!
Rodeo Drive (N Rodeo Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90212)
Rodeo Drive is one of the most famous shopping streets in the World. All of the stores on the street are high-end. Although the shopping is most likely out of your budget, you do not have to actually shop to enjoy Rodeo Drive. The storefronts are beautiful as is the street itself, so you will find yourself content with window shopping and soaking up the true Beverly Hills experience.
Mulholland Drive (Mulholland Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210)
Mulholland Drive offers absolutely panoramic views of Los Angeles. This road doesn’t have a movie and Disneyland Ride (well used to) named after for nothing. This is a winding road that has many sharp twist and turns that bob in out of beautiful Beverly Hills neighborhoods and often offers a view of the Hollywood Sign.
Beverly Hills Famers Market (9300 Block of Civic Center Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210)
For those of you who regularly read my blog, you know I LOVE farmers markets
. Beverly Hills offers its farmers market on Sunday mornings from 9am-1pm. There are usually around 50- 60 stalls as well as food vendors and entertainment.
