Beverly Hills, California: Hollywood Lifestyle on the Sunset Strip and Rodeo Drive
Countless famous entertainers and business moguls work in Hollywood and the Valley, and many of them make their homes in Beverly Hills. There’s a lot of money to go around in this area, and no shortage of ways to spend it. For starters, there are many spas, art galleries, and designer shopping strips such as Rodeo Drive. For three blocks, this street is made up mostly of couture fashion stores; around that, there are 16 blocks known as the Golden Triangle, where you’ll find less expensive boutique stores, especially along Brighton Way.
Only a half mile from the hotel is the Sunset Strip, where monster-size billboards tout the latest music and movies; it’s like a Times Square with palm trees. Make a day trip to see the rock clubs, trendy restaurants, and stylish hotels and shops that live here—there’s a good chance you’ll encounter a few celebrities and many celebrity impersonators along the way.
