  • It’s next to the Beverly Hills sign. A must for tourists. The drive along the garden and nearby is lined with long trees and makes for some great memories. You can sit in the park at night and soak in the amazing scenery all around.
  • Nice place to visit and walk around with friends or family. There are lots of tourist buses that make the pit stop here. Parking is right behind the sign or you can park on the side street and catch a beautiful picture of the palm tree rows. Good place to just chill, Rodeo Drive is across the street if you wanted to do fancy shopping.
