Though Beverly Hills is quiet at night, you can still sniff money
in the air.
And, although celebrities are more likely to live in places
like Bel Air, Brentwood, Malibu, the Hollywood Hills, and Pacific Palisades these days,
new money has taken their place in Beverly Hills, and Beverly Hills
remains Beverly Hills.
Rodeo Drive, just north of Wilshire, in the town centre, is worth
a walk day or night. Gucci gulch has become its apt nickname. Be
sure to walk, too, especially during a day visit, along several
of the small lanes that lead off the business section of Rodeo.
This area of Beverly Hills draws wealthy shoppers from throughout
southern California and the world. Rodeo Drive, by the way, was
named after the original Spanish land grant that included what is
now Beverly Hills.

Serious celebrity groupies will want to check
out the comings and goings at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel,
at the corner of Wilshire and Rodeo, which was the venue of choice
in the movie "Pretty Woman." This is truly a jet set hotel.
If coming from the Sunset Strip, take La Cienega Boulevard southbound down the hill.
Turn right onto Wilshire Boulevard.
You can also reach Wilshire and Rodeo Drive easily by MTA buses.
When done in Beverly Hills, continue on Wilshire to Century City.
