Beverly Hills is home to celebrities and movie stars
Looking for stars and celebrity mansions
If you have a car, you can easily take a drive along the wide streets and check out the enormous mansions, but to learn more about the homes of your favourite celebrities, you can book a special tour. An enthusiastic guide will tell you which movie star has the largest mansion and point out behind which hedge Jennifer Aniston lives. Most operators of these celebrity tours can be found on Hollywood Boulevard near the Walk of Fame. LA City Tours and StarLine Tours are the best known operators.
The upscale shopping street Rodeo Drive
Money is made for spending and that is not a problem in Beverly Hills. Between Wilshire Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard lies the Golden Triangle of Beverly Hills: 7 streets packed with shops and restaurants. The triangle is bordered by Santa Monica Boulevard in the west and Canon Drive in the east. The heart of the elegant district is Rodeo Drive, one of the world's most famous shopping streets and synonymous for unbridled luxury; shoppers won’t get far without a credit card. Practically every major brand is represented along this expensive shopping street and some shops are open by appointment only. However, you don’t need to spend money to soak up the atmosphere of this upscale neighbourhood; even window shopping is quite the experience. And you may even bump into some celebrities.
