Passing a Day in Beverly Hills

Although its quite small, Beverly Hills is renowned around the world for its shopping, people, and luxury. It is always a must on a trip to LA. Considering its small size, there are quite a few options for passing a day in the 90210 zip code. Some of my favorite things to do are shop, dine, and people watch. 

I recently spent a few days in Beverly Hills so I was able to do quite a bit. Here are a few of my recommendations for things to do while soaking up the California sun in Beverly Hills.

Rodeo Drive:
One cannot visit Beverly Hills without strolling on the very famous Rodeo Drive. Whether shopping or window shopping, it is a must. Virtually every designer has a shop along the stretch of Rodeo. The best is to start at the bottom near Wilshire Boulevard and walk up towards little Santa Monica Boulevard and grab cupcakes at Sprinkles once you reach Santa Monica!

The Montage:
The Montage is a beautiful luxury hotel located on Canon Drive. The property also features private residences, so you are sure to see the driveway lined with Bentleys and Rolls Royces. The Montage is a great place to stop and relax in the gardens, grab afternoon tea, or a cocktail on the great rooftop bar.

Villa Blanca:
Yes- the restaurant owned by Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump. I must admit, it is quite the scene, however, the food is actually pretty good. There are more high-end places in Beverly Hills such as Mr. Chow, but it is fun to make at least one stop at Villa Blanca for the experience. 

Pressed Juice:
Juicing is very popular in New York with a lot of different options, but one of my favorites recently opened in Beverly Hills. Tucked away on Bedford Drive is a Pressed Juice. If you are looking for a light, healthy afternoon option, grab a green juice from Pressed while you stroll the streets.

Via Rodeo:
A little offshoot from Rodeo, this tiny passage is also lined with great shopping, but features some dining options as well. This street is home to the famous Versace and Tiffany & Co. stores. 


  1. I was just thinking this morning how badly I wanted to go back to SoCal - mostly to work on my tan.

  2. I need to spend more time exploring. I'm literally 10 mins from Rodeo and have never walked around!
