Where Are The Fires in California?

First, thank you to the dozens of past guests, and the domestic and international travel agents that have reached out to check on our safety during the fires.  Fortunately, we are safe, and our heart goes out to those in the affected areas.  No major fires have hit the general Hollywood or Beverly Hills areas.  When one sees the news, it can look like the whole state is up in flames. This time of year is typically fire season in California.  It’s when the brush in the hills and mountains are at their driest, and when the Santa Ana winds can kick up.  In fact, last year at about this same time (and into December) California had the Skirball Fire,

Celebrity Homes Tours and Sightings in Beverly Hills

CELEBRITY HOMES TOURS AND SIGHTINGS IN BEVERLY HILLS AND HOLLYWOOD _______________________________________ When traveling to different cities and countries, everyone has their own personal bucket list to check off.  In Italy, it may be the canals of Venice, that leaning tower in Pisa, the statue of David, the Coliseum, or dining on great pizza and wine…among 1000’s of other amazing experiences and venues throughout the country. We’re in Los Angeles, and so much of what we do focuses around the celebrity history that helped build our city. It could be the legendary studios where they worked, the homes where they lived, the places they frequent for partying and dining, the locations they died, and ultimately—the places where they are laid to rest.

BOLD SUMMER in Beverly Hills

Yes, the daytime highs have been taking their toll.  Most days so far in July and August have been in the high 80’s, 90’s, and even some have topped out at over a 100.  However, there’s few things better than summer nights in Los Angeles. Once that sun dips down over the Santa Monica Mountain Range and drops lower on the horizon in the Pacific Ocean, it’s near perfect.  Plus, there’s no pesky bugs! One still has 2 more weeks to enjoy BOLD in Beverly Hills.  The annual event has businesses open with extended hours throughout the 90210.  Most of this event takes place on Rodeo Drive, but look for much more in the entire Golden Triangle of shopping and dining.

Brunch in Beverly Hills

Brunch in Beverly Hills ——————————- If there’s one thing we Angelenos thrive on, it’s leisurely dining. The one constant observation from guests during our private Beverly Hills and L.A. tours is, “Does anyone work in this town?” All the cafés are jam-packed with people enjoying their downtime. Just drive down 3rd Street with the tons of afternoon hotspots, or go by Urth Caffe on Melrose Avenue….morning, noon, or night, and see the throngs of L.A. folks having salads, lattes, or pastries at this see-and-be-seen corner location in West Hollywood. Brunch in Beverly Hills on the weekends is really something special. We just had the champagne and seafood-heavy brunch at The Peninsula, and it was AMAZING. ***NOTE: The service here is
