Westside: Hollywood, Beverly Hills & Co.
For many, Los Angeles conjures up images of fame and fortune.
A tour of the Westside will bring you to
the heart of all this glamour - from the hills of Bel Air, filled with lavish homes, or
Rodeo drive where you could blow your life savings in a day. Here, the "beautiful people" live, shop, and
party, at places like Dan Aykroyd's House of Blues on the famous Sunset Strip. Wander around for a day - even at
a shopping mall like the Beverly Center - and you just might catch a glimpse of some of the Westside's notable inhabitants.
The beauty of LA's Westside is not limited to its people, however.
With over 300 museums, it's a great place to get an "art attack."
Museum Row on Wilshire's Miracle Mile is
the perfect starting point to see everything from Picasso at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, to the largest
collection of Miniatures at the Carole & Barry Kaye Museum of Miniatures, to cars of every lineage at the Petersen Automotive Museum.
Head a little further south to Leimert Park for an excursion through the exotic art galleries and shops that reflect African American Culture.
And don't forget to visit the newest, the Getty Center, which sits high on a hill in ivory splendor, waiting to give you a feast for the eyes with
timeless art and one of the most beautiful vistas in California.
