In Beverly Hills, travelers can see what life is like for celebrities. No trip this glitzy Southern California hotspot would be complete without browsing the designer shops on Rodeo Drive or taking a coffee break at Two Rodeo, a cobbled lane lined with outdoor cafés—and, of course, prime people-watching opportunities. Be sure to check out the Beverly Hills Hotel (aka the “Pink Palace”) on Sunset Boulevard, where movie industry giants come to make deals; the Virginia Robinson Gardens, tucked among neighborhoods of manicured estates; and the multitude of celebrity homes and movie sites.
There are countless ways to see Beverly Hills: on a hop-on hop-off bus tour, on rented bikes (for a self-guided excursion), or on a movie star mansion tour, which promises a deep-dive into pop culture. You can also combine a celebrity homes tour with a behind-the-scenes tour of Universal Studios, pedal through Beverly Hills on an LA bike tour, or take a full-day coach tour of LA to visit popular attractions such as Sunset Strip, Hollywood Boulevard, and Venice Beach.
