Rodeo Drive, Sunset Boulevard, Beverly Hills; they are locations that personify the mystique of the movies, and are perfect environments for observing the movie mogul or star in their natural habitat. Cruise Sunset Strip - a 2.4km section of Sunset Boulevard - and the gaudy, neon impression you've brought with you is seemingly confirmed; but look again. There are venerable establishments like Whiskey A Go Go alongside places that haven't even been named yet. The 'Strip' is a heritage icon and also a constantly evolving testing ground for breakthrough ideas in entertainment. Still on Sunset and wanting to splurge on a special lunch? Try Café Med for outstanding Italian cuisine, a table outside delivers memorable people-watching opportunities. Or opt for the evening charm of Le Petit Four, which attracts stars and the not-so-famous with what the restaurant itself claims is an 'eclectic' menu. After the marvellous shopping on Rodeo Drive, and eye-popping grandeur of celebrity mansions in Beverley Hills, most Kiwis will begin yearning for the wholesome pleasures of a beach so head over to Santa Monica to experience the whole place as a culture and art show that shouldn't be missed. Stroll the pier and grab a hotdog, soak up the sunshine and the fashions that we won't be seeing in New Zealand until next year. Then cool off in the Museum of Art before hiring a bike to cycle the 35km ocean front boardwalk to Redondo.
