Style: Educational

Discover a private art collection in a parking structure, a fantastical residence inspired by art nouveau, and street art in an alleyway off of Rodeo. Explore the creative side of Beverly Hills – and catch up with a little city gossip.

On the approximately two-mile loop, you’ll enjoy the public artwork commissioned through the city’s Public Art Ordinance as well as personal collections in unexpected places. Take in the city’s architecture from landmarked to mid-century to contemporary. Stroll down alleys that resemble tree-shaded country lanes, but lined with trash cans and green waste containers plus a mural or two.

• Check out the city's first office building with its impressive directory of artists and writers - both dead and alive.
• Visit a gallery in a refurbished car repair garage. The building with its bricks is art, too!
• Find out about Couch Canyon AKA the Mental Block!

Walk at your own pace.

Your Insider
Ellen L.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, I’ve lived in Beverly Hills for over 20 years. Through my Facebook page Walk Beverly Hills, I encourage people to make walking a style for life and to shop locally while also advocating pedestrian safety. Professionally, I'm in marketing communications for nonprofits and start-ups with an emphasis on publicity, product naming and strategic partnerships. I'm proud to say, I'm a Fellow with ACTIVATE, the artsforla.org leadership program. (I forward a portion of my proceeds to this organization.) Not just a city girl, I volunteer as a nature docent, leading hikes for kids in Franklin Canyon. On most weekends, I attend art openings and other cultural events, practice yoga on the beach, and stock up on fruits and veggies from our farmers' market. Full profile

Ellen knows Beverly Hills backwards and forwards, though usually she does her walking tours forwards for safety reasons;-) You will not find a more knowledgeable and entertaining guide to one of the world' s most famous cities.
