POPULAR AREAS & ATTRACTIONS

BEVERLY HILLS

Manicured streets and world-class shopping lace the lavish hotels and estates in this exquisite zip code, and its central location to all that Los Angeles has to offer makes it particularly alluring for visitors. The ultimate in luxury destinations, Beverly Hills is also home to high-end bridal shops and anything else you may need to complete your elopement. (Photo courtesy of Beverly Hills Conference & Visitors Bureau)

HOLLYWOOD

A decade of intense gentrification has restored Hollywood to the same level of glamour that made it famous. Celebrated restaurants and edgy bars surround modern hotels and historic properties that have been beautifully renovated to their former glory. West Hollywood boasts the famous Sunset Strip and is just a stone's throw from Beverly Hills.  (Photo courtesy of Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board)

MALIBU

Malibu may be most associated with its spectacular beaches, but rolling hills and beautiful vineyard estates are also key to this illustrious seaside neighborhood. A charming hub of upscale shopping and restaurants keeps things civilized, but its relative seclusion and plush options for lodging are what make Malibu the perfect oasis for a gorgeous elopement.
