Five festive photo opportunities in Beverly Hills
November 28, 2022
The Beverly Hills Hotel
Our red carpet entrance always offers a warm welcome at The Beverly Hills Hotel and during the holiday season, it’s even more special. Lined with toy soldiers and decorative garlands galore, your photos will be wonderfully festive whichever angle you choose. Gather together with family and friends for specialty cocktails and festive feasts to indulge in a truly legendary experience.
Every year the city of Beverly Hills becomes a winter wonderland. From the Golden Triangle to Sunset Boulevard, visitors and locals alike enjoy festive strolls, taking in the delights of downtown 90210. The restaurants and storefronts all along Rodeo Drive dress up for the occasion, providing great photo opportunities. You can also find live music and there’s the possibility of capturing a selfie with Santa.
Throughout the landscaped gardens of Hotel Bel-Air, discover a host of picture perfect places to inspire some memorable photos. Start by snapping your first shots as you cross the bridge over scenic Swan Lake, decorated with an array of twinkling lights for the festivities. Once you’ve toured the grounds, we highly recommend an Instagrammable seasonal cocktail at the bar.
Beverly Gardens Park
Spanning nearly two miles along Santa Monica Boulevard, Beverly Gardens Park is a popular city oasis. Its picturesque lily pond dates back to 1907 and makes a lovely backdrop for photos, especially if you include the retro arched Beverly Hills sign – perfect for posing in your Santa hat.
City shield sign
The iconic Beverly Hills city shield sign is another popular place for photos, situated outside the Beverly Hills Visitor Center on South Santa Monica Boulevard. Either grab a sunny shot by day or wait until nightfall, when the sign lights up for a touch of added drama and a good excuse to test the fancy features on your camera phone.
The Beverly Hills Hotel
For over a century, The Beverly Hills Hotel has been the spot for Hollywood’s brightest lights, the ultimate beacon of glamour. She greets you like a movie star from the moment you pass the iconic signage, step onto the signature red carpet and enter the grand lobby. Welcome to the legacy.
