Things to Do in Beverly Hills

View Map

Gucci, Prada, Versace and many other brands that stand for opulence and wealth fill the shops of Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive and the Golden Triangle. But it’s not just the shopping that draws locals and tourists to the glistening streets of one of LA’s richest neighborhoods. There’s a wealth of gardens and theaters to be enjoyed, including the Greystone Mansion, the Electric Fountain and Saban Theater.

After an afternoon spent shopping, visitors can dine at one of the many delectable restaurants in Beverly Hills, from heavy-hitters like Thomas Keller’s Bouchon and Wolfgang Puck’s Spago to international cuisines, charming cafes and chain eateries. On an average day, celebrities, tourists and locals can be found at the various hangout spots of the famous Beverly Hills Hotel, either lounging by the pool, feasting at the historic Polo Lounge or networking at Bar Nineteen12.

The playground of heiresses and the social elite, Beverly Hills is a bastion of material excess and solid gold style. Houses in the area range from the extravagant in size and splendor to the divinely elegant. Outstretched palm leaves extend their shadows over stately manors situated on some of the city's most sought after addresses.

The famous Beverly Hills Hotel is a Hollywood landmark of sorts that has been seen on film, television, and thousands of postcards distributed throughout the world. Other accommodations in the area offer more affordable, yet still memorable lodging.

While Beverly Hills has built the reputation of affluence and status over the years, one needn’t be a member of the social elite to enjoy the museums, art galleries and beautiful landscaping and architecture that the neighborhood has to offer.
