Spa Montage is conveniently located near many of Beverly Hills’ main attractions, including Rodeo Drive. It’s only a five-minute walk to the beginning of a long line of designer shops like Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Dior, Prada, Chanel and La Perla — so don’t forget to leave extra room in your suitcase. You can also visit the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences headquarters on Wilshire Boulevard, where every January the Academy Awards nominations are broadcast.
A short walk from the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa down Canon Drive will take you to the Beverly Gardens Park, where you can take a picture with the famous 40-foot illuminated Beverly Hills sign surrounded by a water feature and lush landscaping. You can also tour the cactus and rose gardens and check out the colorful display at the Wilshire electric fountain.
If you’re in the mood for art, try the Beverly Hills location of the Gagosian Gallery on Camden Drive, where you’ll find contemporary and modern art exhibitions by famous names like Andy Warhol or celebrity newcomers like James Franco.
Last but not least, the luxury spa is not far from the tourist must-see Hollywood Walk of Fame. Take a taxi about six miles to Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street where you can snap pictures with the sidewalk stars of legends like James Dean, Audrey Hepburn and Gene Kelly plus those of Oscar-winning actors like Halle Berry, Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks.
