Naturally when I think of Beverly Hills, I think of :
The Weezer Song - Beverly Hills
The Movie Clueless
The Movie Pretty Woman

What do all of these have in common?  A fabulous and luxurious lifestyle. Beverly Hills totally lives up to its persona!  There were definitely some things that we didn't expect when we took our long seaside drive to Beverly Hills.

The first thing I noticed was the cleanliness. I would say it is definitely one of the cleanest if not the cleanest city in California (which, as Canadian kids we totally appreciate).
The second thing, how nice people were! For some reason I kind of just assumed the community as a whole would be a bit snobby but it was definitely not this way! Everyone we met were super kind, helpful, and very welcoming. 
Finally, what shocked us the most, was the affordability of food and shopping. Of course, you can always go all out - but both of us were totally amazed that our wallets didn't catch fire from the cost of the lifestyle.
With sunny streets, a warm breeze, happy people, and a feeling of sophistication, Beverly Hills was definitely better than we ever imagined!

So, now that we have you all pumped up for the Hills, you may ask:  “What were your highlights?” … So glad you asked!

The Avalon Beverly Hills is everything you ever want in a retro meets modern hotel.  The staff is beyond hospitable and the beds are oh-so-heavenly! To stay here was a total treat.  The hotel so kindly upgraded our room to a pool view with a balcony. We couldn't have been happier with our room! It was so spacious and elegant. For me, I absolutely love that they have Davines products in the bathroom - it's so rare to find quality toiletries in hotels.

In the center of the Avalon you will find the swimming pool and eating area. Even if you end up not staying at the Avalon, you have to go and experience their brunch in a poolside cabana! They have every brunch item you could ever want and it is served so beautifully.  On top of it… did I mention that you can nosh on your avo-toast in a poolside cabana?

Overall, we would totally recommend Avalon Beverly Hills to anyone! Whether you’re looking to stay for fun or for business, they have everything you're looking for and more.

None of the above?
The Hills has you covered for anything you crave! Here were our top picks:
The Avalon Hotel… for all of the above mentioned reasons.
Gratitude is ammmazing! They are an entirely vegan restaurant and have an incredible diverse menu.  Each meal has a name associated to a feeling, and the name of the meal represents how you are feeling when you eat it.  It's an absolutely cool and unique concept. Best of all, Gratitude is affordable, sustainable, and chic.
Beverliz Café
This little gem has beautifully made Mediterranean food and seriously the BEST hummus I have tasted.  We really loved the variety on their menu and the quality of food they presented. It’s great for a casual summer dining experience!
When you stroll the Hills, you have to go to Sugarfina! I know, its a chain candy shop.  However, the location in Beverly Hills is the original Sugarfina as well as the largest one!  With a candy concierge and every item of sweet treat, you can't go wrong with visiting Sugarfina!
A restaurant and cafe at the Beverly Hills Wilshire and a total celebrity experience!
The food is so tasty, plus there’s no better patio to sip a refreshing drink and watch people strolling by. Located right next to Rodeo Dr, I dare you to find a better location, friendlier service, or tastier pizza. Totally awesome experience all around!
Because shopping…. And sightseeing.
It’s famous for a reason! Seriously the street itself is a work of art. Beautifully manicured palm trees and every sort of shopping experience, Rodeo Dr is a must - do for all of you shopaholics out there!
