STYLE AND CULTURE
STYLISH CITY: LA
By Belle Rice, 10 August 2019
For some serious fresh garms, make Beverly Hills your first stop. It's also got some must-see spots made famous by the movies, from the designer stores of Rodeo Drive (location of the legendary Beverly Hills Cop) to the Electric Fountain in Beverly Hills Triangle. Skater fans can ride their boards down from Santa Monica Pier to Venice Beach, where you can flip trick your way around the massive skatepark (worth a watch to see some seriously impressive skills even if you’re not a pro yourself). Rather be in the water than next to it? Up your surf game with some lessons at AquaSurf, available at various locations along the southern California coastline.
Fitness fanatics can get their kicks with a hike up to Griffith Observatory for unbeatable views of the entire city (Hollywood sign included). And when you’re up for a refresh after all the LA-style exercise, head to Nate 'n Al’s for an all-star American meal, or up the ante with drinks at The BLVD at the Beverly Wilshire.
