Beverly Hills Sign & Lily Pond
Your trip to Beverly Hills isn’t complete without a snap in front of the Beverly Hills sign, located in Beverly Gardens Park, between North Canon Drive and North Beverly Drive.

After documenting the stop, keep strolling down Beverly Gardens Park’s eleven-block pedestrian trail to take in your next must-see attraction.
Hymn of Life: Tulips
Taking in all of the art in Beverly Hills warrants an itinerary all on its own, but you can catch a glimpse of what the city has to offer on your stroll of Beverly Gardens Park. Located just one block west of the Beverly Hills sign is Hymn of Life: Tulips by Yayoi Kusama. The piece, installed in 2007, depicts three large tulips and reflects Kusama’s whimsical style of using dots as a recurring motif in her work. Beverly Hills is home to many incredible works of art available for the enjoyment of the public.
From Hymn of Life, it’s just a quick walk down Rodeo Drive to the main shopping district in Beverly Hills. Prada, Cartier, Chanel, Gucci and the Louis Vuitton flagship store are just a few of the fashion houses in the easily walkable area, which is anchored by the pedestrian-only Two Rodeo Drive.
You don’t even have to be a shopper to enjoy all that Rodeo Drive has to offer: complete your Rodeo experience at Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, which was the iconic setting of Pretty Woman.
Greystone Mansion & Gardens: The Doheny Estate
Historic estates pepper the residential areas of Beverly Hills, including Greystone Mansion & Gardens—a sprawling Tudor Revival on an estate built by the Doheny family. If you are a cinephile, you may recognize this registered historic landmark as a shooting location for films including The Bodyguard, The Social Network and Spider-Man. Wander through the manicured gardens and courtyard surrounding the mansion, and catch a glimpse of the impressive fountain and pool.
