The sidewalks are in terrible condition, only marginally worse than the roads. Still I fould a great coffee shop, Javista at 6707 Sunset, and an interesting Church (see photos). Overall it was an interesting experience, probably one I wouldn't do at night! As far as driving it goes...

I walked from Hollywood to Sunset strip. Waste of time. Parts are seedy and I wasn't sure I actually arrived at the Sunset strip for a while. It was off season and is definitely for those 20 something's for nightlife. Highlight were the two gorgeous barmaids at the pub I went into.

Because of the speed limit and the traffic, it takes about 45 minutes to drive along the entire boulevard. This very nice drive takes you through several parts of the city, with nice houses, a nice view, passing next to UCLA, Beverly Hills and Bel Air. We drive a convertible car and we enjoyed the drive.

Its kind of divey and well, not very classy. I was approached by a crazy girl on rollerblades wearing a tutu and not much else. I was at the gas station leaning on the car talking with a friend (I know, it already sounds like i was asking for it) when she skated up. Now, I love a crazy person... More

We really enjoyed our drive down Sunset Blvd. So much to see. We took a number of good photos together and went exploring the shops. The weather was very agreeable. A nice street adorned with palm trees and healthy looking tanned people, nothing to complain about. It beats Rochdale any day!

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
