Summer in Beverly Hills showcases all that sunny California has to offer. You’ll find exciting activities, unique attractions and boundless fun for everyone in the family. Here are just a few of our favorite things to do:
A visit to this six-acre estate provides you with an insider’s look at everything Beverly Hills represents. Built in 1911 as the area’s first luxury home, the main house has hosted parties with iconic guests including Fred Astaire and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Today, the surrounding gardens and expansive lawn are filled with camellias, azaleas and orchids, including a king palm forest and an incredible rose garden for taking pictures.
One of the best-kept secrets in Beverly Hills, this lovely park offers 605 acres of natural wonder. The three-acre lake and bucolic pond are home to seasonal birds, turtles, ducks and bullfrogs. Explore the Sooky Goldman Nature Center; see a show at the Eugene and Michael Rosenfeld Auditorium or the Sam Goldman Amphitheater; and hike along scenic trails amid California oaks, wild sage and fields of poppies.
A repository for more than 100 years of radio and television, the Paley Center routinely screens a variety of historic media and rotates incredible exhibits offering a glimpse into the past and present of screen and radio. From Star Trek and Outlander, to Shark Week and sports, this remarkable museum holds something to fascinate every taste.
Find the perfect photo opportunity alongside the famous forty-foot, illuminated Beverly Hills sign in this linear park. Home to the annual Beverly Hills Art Show, the park also features cactus and rose gardens, fountains, a walking and jogging path, and exquisite arbors. It’s a fabulous place to spend an hour or an afternoon!
Stop in for a cool drink or a glass of bubbly, and enjoy the elegance that is the incredible Beverly Wilshire while getting a taste of how the rich and up-and-coming live. The fabulous setting for Pretty Woman is both impressive and ornate, featuring a gorgeous floral display in the lobby and intricate ornamentation throughout.
The latest addition to the Beverly Hills park system, this expansive space offers 33,000 square feet of landscaped gardens. You’ll find lots of outdoor cafes and dining areas, a variety of water features including a babbling fountain, and impressive colonnaded walkways connecting Beverly and Cañon Drives.
The vast, immaculately manicured gardens of Greystone Mansion offer a glimpse into a classic Hollywood estate. Featured in countless feature films, a stroll along the iconic grounds will make you feel as if you have become part of a blockbuster movie yourself.
A walk down Rodeo Drive is an absolute must, especially for first-time visitors. Known for consummate luxury, unmatched fashions and the ultimate lifestyles of the rich and famous, people watching and celebrity sighting here are almost as much fun as window-shopping. Fun any time of year, we especially enjoy it now just before stores transition from summer to fall lines!
