    Beverley Hills - Rodeo Drive

    by K.Knight Written Jul 24, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rodeo Drive

    The stretch of shops and boutiques on Rodeo Drive is only three blocks long. It begins at Wilshire Boulevard on the south, and runs north to Santa Monica Boulevard, where the commercial section of the street gives way to an affluent residential neighborhood. 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.

    Rodeo Drive is situated in the Beverly Hills area and it's famous for its top notch shopping. It's an area of about trhee blocks with boutiques and shops of the best lables and brands .

    Here you can find Armani, Gucci, Canel, Valentino, Cartier, Tiffany among many otheres. But I also found that there are some shops and boutiques not so expensive and more affordable. There was even a Levi's store which was selling items with huge discounts.

    It's here that celebrities shop and it was also here that part of the movie "Pretty woman" with Julia Roberts was filmed.

    2 Rodeo Drive (Beverly Hills)

    by Erin74 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2 Rodeo in Beverly Hills

    2 Rodeo is a scenic shopping and dining area in Beverly Hills. It's a block-long strip of shops that includes Tiffany & Co, Versace, Badgley Mischka, Jose Eber and restaurants inlcuding McCormick & Schmick's.

    At the south end of 2 Rodeo is a lovely water fountain and steps that provide a great photo op and a view of the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Walk up the stairs and down along the little pathway that meanders past various shops. This is a great place to window shop and take some pictures.

    If you're hungry, McCormick & Schmick's serves delicious seafood on their outdoor patio or inside in their cozy dining room. You can also see sporting events on the small TVs in their bar.

    You can park directly under 2 Rodeo. It's free for 2 hours (although you will want to tip the valet). From here, you can walk to all of the sights in the area.

    Rode Drive sign

    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.

    Rodeo Drive again

    Rodeo Drive

    This place is not actually the hell I may have painted in my previous tips. Sorry for having given this idea.
    Rodeo Drive is a pleasant place where to have a walk in peace, fearing nothing but spending a lot of money as soon as you enter a shop in there.
    Good for us was that many of the shops were the same we find every day in Rome and so we were not so tempted to go in.

    Rodeo Drive Walkway

    An obliged destination for those who want to visit Los Angeles is the fabled Rodeo Drive.
    Everybody come here secretly hoping to find some celebrities wandering along this road, everybody with "Pretty Woman" and Julia Roberts still in their eyes.
    It is clear that you'll never find one here, unless you are very lucky (if luck is measured even in counting the stars you see).

    As part of our short bus tour of Hollywood was the last stop-off at Rodeo Drive. We had about 20 minutes to have a look around. Not much I know, but its not as if you could really buy anything there. I remember the tour guide saying, "you cannot ask the stores how much anything costs, because if you have to ask you can't afford it". We made sure we went and had a quick look at the hotel where the movie "Pretty Woman" was filmed, and checked out their 5 star toilets ;)

    The Rodeo Drive - for the rich and famous
    1 more image

    The famous Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills is famous for its boutiques, of which some don't even let you in if you are not dressed properly. Also, you don't ask for prices when you enter the boutique and get interested in something.

    These shops and boutiques are for those who do not have to ask for prices. Many celebrities do their shopping here.

    Rodeo Drive - "Cure for boredom!"

    by Jerelis Updated Sep 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The famous road sign of Rodeo Drive.

    Taking a walk down Rodeo Drive immediately conjures up images of Rome's Via Conditti, Paris' Faubourg Saint Honore, London's New Bond Street and even New York's Madison Avenue. The street definately has an international flair, but comparison stops there.

    The New York Times has called Rodeo "The world's most prestigious" shopping street. To the late Andy Warhol Rodeo was "like a giant butter scotch sundae". Others called it "the ultimate cure for boredom".

    Stairs of Rodeo Drive

    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.

    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.

    Rodeo Drive - Unique Southern California attitude.

    by Jerelis Updated Sep 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beverly Wilshire - featured in

    The historic timeline of Rodeo Drive starts in the early 1900's when the Rodeo Land and Water Company begins to develop a large tract of land in Beverly Hills. A real boost of attracting celebrities to Rodeo Drive happened when the Brown Derby Restaurant opened its doors in 1938. Right now you'll find a lot of exclusive shops like Tommy Hilfinger, Hugo Boss, Chanel, Cartier, Gucci, etc.

    To be honest, we didn't stay too long at Rodeo Drive. We passed it when we left Beverly Hills. Still we liked it. Why did we like it? Well, maybe it was the nice sunshine or the notion that at any moment we might just brush shoulders with a famous celebrity. Anyway, Rodeo Drive is renowned as the most American of streets with a uniquely Southern California attitude.
