This is one of the most famous neighborhoods of Los Angeles and the world. It is full of enormous mansions, and is generally inhabitaed by famous American movie stars. It consists of Large avenues of palm trees, parks, and green zones ... It is total luxury everywhere.
The most luxurious street in Los Angeles. People passing by are either tourists or very rich. Designer shops in a strictly commercial street. No more, but it's worth going through there a few minutes or, if you can afford it, make a purchase.
Sunset Boulevard (also known as the 'Sunset Strip') is the most famous street in Hollywood where you can watch the sun dipping over the ocean. This is one of the most popular areas for tourists to visit in LA, as it passes through several upscale neighborhoods. You can see famous establishments like the Viper Room, the club once owned by Johnny Depp, or the Whisky A Go Go, an old club that played a starring role in the development of the American rock'n'roll scene. Bands including Motorhead, Motley Crue, Pink Floyd, The Doors and Guns N'Roses have all played there. And there's the Chateau Marmont hotel which dates back to 1929 and was popular with stars, Mel's Drive In, and the Saddle Ranch Chop House, where series including Desperate Housewives have filmed scenes.
Trolley Tours is the name of a tourist route in Beverly Hills. I recognize that it's a somewhat atypical route, consisting of visiting a neighborhood to see the outsides of houses where movie stars live. The route is about 8 miles. The list of current or former residents of the houses in Beverly Hills is very long and includes names ranging from Rita Hayworth to Walt Disney to Elvis Presley or Barbra Streisand. Honestly, this is a must if you are traveling to Los Angeles.
Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts at UCLA, is located in Los Angeles and was opened in 1956. It has more than 45,000 prints, drawings, photographs and artist books dating from the Renaissance to the present. It is helped and enriched by means of acquisitions and very large donations. UCLA teachers also organize graphic art exhibitions and publications in this museum.
The museum displays a diverse collection of art from the Renaissance period to contemporary times. It features works that are taken from the Armand Hammer Collection, consisting of paintings of impressionist and post-impressionist artists such as Mary Cassatt, Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh. It also highlights the works of the Armand Hammer Daumier and displays works of contemporary arts in all of its different expressions.
The UCLA Hannah Carter Japanese Garden covers just over an acre of land and is located in the community of Bel Air, which is about half a mile from the campus. The garden was inspired by the gardens of Kyoto. Many structures in the garden - the main gate, garden house, bridges, and shrine - were built in Japan and were reconnected. Many pieces here came right from Japan like the ancient stone carvings, water basins and lanterns, the five-story pagoda, and key symbolic rocks. It is a very special place.
Greystone Mansion is definitely a historic site gem in Los Angeles County (that also happens to be a historic site) worth checking out. Nestled up in Beverly Hills, it was completed in 1928 by oil tycoon Edward Doheny. It’s a beautiful place perfect for a walk and it’s impossible not to get lost in thought. It’s easy to spend an hour or so admiring the beautiful Gothic architecture, gardens, fountains, the koi pond, and the views of LA it offers are quite nice to look at. It’s a great spot to relax, meditate, sit and read a book (there are benches around to sit on), away from the busyness that is found all around LA. The place is frequently used for weddings and has been used as a filming location in moves like Spiderman and The Social Network. It’s also a great place for those who enjoy taking photos. Parking and admission are free at Greystone. Highly recommended!
