Versace, Armani, diamonds...an average day of shopping for me. Ha ha. More like Poundland. Anyway, enough about my lack of money, this is much like Sloane Street in London, in its shops and appearance. Great to walk down and have fun looking into the shop windows.
Beautiful pedestrian friendly shopping District in Beverly Hills, where there are many high end luxury stores in the immediate vicinity. It is very comfortable to walk through, & you might actually have a chance to see a Hollywood star.
Unfortunately, I did not get to shop here.. I didn't even get to window shop here.. lol.. But hey, that too will come one day.
All things come to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.. ;-)
This has got to be the most famous shopping district in the US and probably the most expensive. It is only 3 blocks long but this is where the Rich and Famous come to their shopping with many top class clothing designers having boutiques here. Tourists tend to just window shop and try to spot a movie star or two.
The stretch of shops and boutiques on Rodeo Drive is only three blocks long, but those three short blocks constitute the most famous shopping district in America, and probably the most expensive three blocks of shops in the world.
I had to go walking along Rodeo Drive and see all that glamour area with all the expensive shops at that world-famous *drive* to stores on Beverly Drive and the Wilshire Corridor, as well as the quaint, independent stores tucked away on Robertson and Little Santa Monica Boulevards.
I also had lunch up the little Rodeo Drive in a cosy café.
Go get pampered in a Beverly Hills Salon.....let me recommend Umberto! They were GREAT!!! I felt so glamorous after getting my hair and make-up done there. They really gave me the star treatment!!!
Umberto himself selects a specific stylist for you based on your hair type and what you want to be done! It's really personalized service...and you don't feel at all rushed!
Just checked aout a few of the stores, and was amazed to find a SALE going on a Tommy Hillfiger. Was cheaper than I could've bought at home! And on Rodeo Dr!!! Don't be afraid everything will be too expensive....you just never know!!
Go to Beverly Hills. There are brand name stores all along Wilshire and Rodeo Drive. They even made this European village. Just a warning: don't be upset if the store clerks ignore you, it's part of their job description. It is fun, though, driving around the town to check out the size of the mansions. I wonder if the residents call it house or mansion? And where is Monica Lewinsky's home?
You must go see Rodeo Drive. It is a world of its own. On a different note, go hiking in the Santa Monca mountains
It is a good two hour hike where at the top you have fabulous views of the city and the ocean
Beverley Hills 90210 otherwise known as the Rodeo Drive area. It is amazing. I didn't have much time in Los Angeles but when I stayed in beverley hills I managed to have a wander around Rodeo Drive before I had to leave early in the morning and it is a definate must-see. The shops that you can expect to see there are all of the famous designer ones such as Gucci, Valentino, Tiffany & Co, Prada....Being a fan of the series Beverly Hills 90210 as a child I had to see it for myself and it was just how I imagined; clean, smart and cosmopolitan.
If you are a designer maniac, then you can literally find all of the top designer shops in 90210
The Rodeo Drive is where the rich and famous shop for luxury brand goods. Most shops are open by appointments only. A nice window shopping for those less privileged.
Shop until your eyes fall out, or your wallet goes empty. Don't count on seeing somebody famous, but if you're lucky, you'll see something who thinks he/she's famous.
