Those travelling to the sunny state of California in America, have much to see and do. This vast state is home to several locales each offering something different to experience; Los Angeles, Malibu, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Nevada City, San Diego and Sacramento to name a few! Not to be missed however, when holidaying in California, is a visit to the popular city known as Beverly Hills. >
Known for its exclusive neighbourhoods, famous celebrity residents, upscale shopping and trendy nightlife, this famous city is located next to West Hollywood and is bounded by Los Angeles. Made even more famous by such television shows as “Beverly Hills, 90210”, the city is an ideal place to visit for young and old alike and offers plenty of activities for those exploring its charming streets. The Greystone Mansion and Park, Rodeo Drive shopping district, Beverly Gardens Park, the Electric Fountain, Beverly Hills City Hall, Roxbury Park and Virginia Robinson Gardens are among the attractions worth checking out.
Part of the charm of visiting here is that you will never know what fascinating site of interest you will come across on your adventures. Thos heading to Doheny Drive which can be found near Wilshire Boulevard, should make time to see one of the city’s more unusual homes; the Zoo House!
Located in the Beverly Hills flats area, the Zoo House is so named, due to the intriguing array of animal sculptures that can be found on its lawns. Many of these sculptures are close to life-size and are positioned on the house’s lawn. A proud looking lion staring at those who walk past, a gorilla surveying the scenery in front of him and even a giraffe with its long neck towering above the fence as young ones watch below, are among the animal sculptures you can view here.
Those interested in looking at striking architectural design should also explore Sunset Boulevard. Though you may not see sculptured animals here, you will definitely come across Colonial and Spanish style houses.
Travellers heading to the city and in search of a 5 Star Hotel Beverly Hills that not only offers luxurious comforts but superior service as well can stay at The Peninsula Beverly Hills. Apart from stylish accommodation options, this Beverly Hills Luxury Hotel also boasts of an award-winning luxury spa that lets you enjoy some personal pampering.
