The Beverly Hills Home Tour is known for the hundreds of millions of mansions that light up the area. Some of the architecture is stunning and you only have to see it to believe the price!
Shopaholics will love Rodeo Drive for its collection of exclusive boutiques and designer stores, while celebrity hunters want to dress and drink at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where Hollywood's elite still roam today.
Somehow, not many tourists come to Santa Monica, it's really strange. Imagine a quaint seaside town with a great wharf (with ferris wheel and other walking trails) and a completely pedestrian downtown area with some great restaurants and shopping.
Downtown Los Angeles
There's a school of thought that Los Angeles doesn't have a real center at its center, even though it doesn't. Many locals consider the center of the bourgeoisie to be the heart of the city and there are many interesting places that define it.
These include City Hall, which some tourists can recognize by Superman (The Daily Planet's headquarters), Union Street Train Station, which has been featured in many films and TV shows, and El Pueblo de Los Angeles, a historic site it also owns. Los Angeles awards in 1781 and contains some of the oldest and most charming buildings in the city as well as Olvera Street which has some interesting museums and stalls.
