Beverly Hills, California
Opulent estates. Palm-lined Rodeo Drive. Lavish hotels and stretch limousines. Look around Beverly Hills, and it’s no wonder this city gets its reputation as an international symbol of the ultimate in luxury.
From the galleries and cafes of downtown’s Golden Triangle to some of the world’s priciest real estate in the hills above Sunset Boulevard, Beverly Hills lives up to its glistening reputation. Get a great look at its art, architecture, and history on the narrated Beverly Hills Trolley Tour. Or just stroll—there’s great window-shopping and people-watching not only on poshest-of-the-posh Rodeo Drive but also along Beverly Drive, home to the legendary hangout of the stars, Nate ‘n Al Delicatessen. And like a grand Old World promenade, historic Beverly Gardens Park trims Santa Monica Boulevard with fragrant roses, a cactus garden, and vintage fountains.
There’s culture too. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences is based in Beverly Hills and offers exhibits and screenings. Designed by noted architect Richard Meier, The Paley Center for Media celebrates the world of television by showing rare broadcasts and conducting panels featuring stars and creators in talks about their work. And the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts incorporates the city’s 1933 Beverly Hills post office and its rare, restored frescoes into a stunning contemporary complex with a 500-seat theater that hosts live performances.
