"Los Angeles-Rodeo Drive" Beverly Hills / Rodeo Drive Tip by mad4travel

  Rodeo Drive

I must admit I thought Rodeo drive was overrated. This is probably because:

a)I'm poor
b) I don't really like shopping

Still, its one of those places to tick off you list.

If you do have money and you do like to shop then of course you will be in heaven.
There are store galore including:

Armani
Gucci
Christian Dior
Coco Chanel
Ralph Lauren
Valentino
Cartier
Tiffany.
Other nearby stores include I. Magnin, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Yves Saint Laurent, & Pierre Deux.

In fact, Rodeo Drive is home to the single most expensive store in the world: Bijan (at 420 Rodeo Drive). You must make an appointment in advance just to shop at Bijan (which was named after its Iranian owner). On a typical visit, Bijan's average customer spends in the neighborhood of $100,000 on men's fashions, which range from a $50 pair of socks to $15,000 suits.

The stretch of shops and boutiques on Rodeo Drive is only three blocks long. It begins at Wilshire Boulevard on the south, and runs north to Santa Monica Boulevard, where the commercial section of the street gives way to an affluent residential neighborhood.
