Spotlight on Beverly Grove

The Beverly Grove neighborhood was originally just a number of subdivisions oriented to access by car way out on the edge of the L.A. sprawl, where even the trolleys didn't go. Today, it's a dynamic and constantly evolving neighborhood that's constantly full of bustling shoppers and visitors looking to explore the malls, boutiques, and mansions on its outskirts. It's just a short jaunt to Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and West Hollywood and everything those regions have to offer. 

It's a foodie destination with some of the most popular restaurants in the city. The walkable streets are fun and interesting, and some locals have referred to it as the new Beverly Hills because it's a hip, lively, and exciting neighborhood that's a center for the latest trends. Whether you're at the La Brea Tar Pits & Museum or The Grove, Beverly Grove is the place to be.

Good to know about Beverly Grove

Beverly Grove is a suburban neighborhood on the outskirts of Los Angeles that attracts many young professionals and the on-the-rise crowd. It's been the target of close scrutiny lately because upscale mansions have been going up where formerly smaller houses were found, but these mansions are also an attraction for those who love to look at gorgeous homes. Many of these are iconic and even historic, like Greystone Mansion & Gardens. 

The upscale nature of the neighborhood makes it a very safe place to visit. The neighborhood itself is dog-friendly, but many of the indoor venues only allow service animals. Before bringing your dog along, make sure it's leashed and call the businesses you'll be visiting ahead of time. Almost every business in the area is Americans with Disabilities Act compliant and accessible, but contact individual businesses for any specific accommodations you might need.
