Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, holiday decorations

Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills has had some pretty amazing holiday decorations over the past couple of years. Usually, the decorations have the greatest impact at night, like the half-dozen huge crystal chandeliers hanging over the street that were lighted at sunset every night during the season a year or two ago.

But this year, the street must look as pretty during the day as it does at night. The palm trees planted in the center median are draped in hundreds of crystals (Swarovski) on long strands, and there are other arrangements of crystals inside lucite boxes lower to the ground. When I turned the corner this morning on the way to my office, the effect of the sunlight on all those crystals was just dazzling. A real "Oh, wow" moment.

If you live in the area or plan to come to L.A. during the holidays, don't miss Rodeo Drive!

Thanks for heads up. Just got to Long Beach for Thanksgiving visit w/ family. I know we'll be up in LA on Friday to see Cirque D' Soleil show ..... maybe can do a drive-by.

JBX, if it's not a bright, sunny day, then it might not be worth a detour. This morning is a little overcast, and the street isn't nearly as spectacular a sight as yesterday. I haven't seen it at night yet which should be awfully pretty with spotlights shining on the crystals.

I also haven't yet driven/walked past the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel which usually has beautiful holiday decorations. If you could contemplate a splurge, consider going there or to the newly re-opened Bel Air Hotel for drinks or afternoon tea.
