Beverly Hills from A to Z: map, hotels, attractions, restaurants, entertainment. Shopping, shops. Photos, videos and reviews about Beverly Hills.
For the glitz of Hollywood, visit the richest neighborhood in the City of Angels, a name that shudders fans of the once-hit Beverly Hills 90210 series. The western part of Los Angeles, which has long become an independent town, hiding world-famous mansions behind high armored fences, is always popular with tourists.
Walking through the vast territory of the “star” district is a real feat for a hiker. Public transport in this area is not developed (don’t expect to meet Brad Pitt on the bus), the nearest metro station is far away, so it is best to rent a car.
There is a rental shop right in the center of Beverly Hills where you need to show an International Driving License and a credit card.
Renting an economy class car for a week will cost you about 240 USD. The prices on the page are for November 2019.

The two main streets of Beverly Hills – Rodeo Drive and Sunset Strip – are home to the best restaurants in Hollywood, where movie and show business stars can be seen at the next table. The city’s classic restaurants are Chasen’s, Vic’s, Grill, Jimmy’s, Planet Hollywood and Spago Beverly Hills. An institution with more affordable prices right next to Rodeo Drive – Villa Blanca restaurant with pleasant music, delicious cuisine, professional service. The bill per person is from 80-100 USD, which makes this place popular not only with celebrities, but also with many tourists.
The optimal tip is 15-20% of the order.
National cuisine is served at Mastro’s Steakhouse. Fans of seafood and romance should visit the Il Cielo restaurant: open terraces and beautiful views make it one of the most romantic establishments in the city.
Shopping and shops
A paradise for shopaholics, an unspoken museum of world brands of clothing, shoes, perfumery and cosmetics – all this is Beverly Hills. However, a visit to, for example, the Rodeo Collection shopping complex can empty your pockets.
The heroine of Julia Roberts in the film “Pretty Woman” made her famous walks along Rodeo Drive.
Village milk, fresh vegetables and fruits, pastries and cakes, freshly caught fish can be bought at the Farmers’ Market. The farmers’ market is located close to film studios, so movie stars often drop in there: Marilyn Monroe, members of the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Leonardo DiCaprio have been here.
