The beach is just one of the many places to enjoy the outdoors surrounding the Huntley Hotel, but the sandy shores beckon from a mere two blocks away. The popular Palisades Park is great for a bike ride down to the Santa Monica Pier where you can take a ride on the Ferris wheel. For those who enjoy their outings more on the paved side, the Third Street Promenade is a short walk away as well. This shopping area is perfect for a stroll to enjoy the boutiques, shops, and coffee houses.
Malibu is just a short drive away and contains some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Shopping can also be found at the Country Mart, located close to the beaches of Malibu. Visitors can end the day with a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants such as the casual Duke's Malibu or the high end Gladstone's or Geoffrey's.
There are a great number of outdoor spots to enjoy with hiking, biking, and surfing being at the top of the list. Nearby parks include the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, the Will Rogers State Historic Park, and the Malibu Creek State Park. Guests can also enjoy wine tasting at local venues in Malibu.
No trip to Southern California is complete without visiting famous Hollywood. Guests can take in the sights at the Hollywood & Highland complex and see the venue where the star-studded Academy Awards take place. The courtyard has one of the best spots anywhere to view the iconic Hollywood sign before strolling down the Walk of Fame to find the name of their favourite celebrity.
Beverly Hills is another area that cannot be missed. Shopping along Rodeo Drive is a once-in-a-lifetime event where visitors can peruse the names of famous designers of both clothing and jewellery. You’ll see names such as Sax Fifth Avenue on Department Store Row, Barney's, and Neiman Marcus to name a few. Two Rodeo Drive became the next most popular shopping venue, and some say it has surpassed its namesake. This area is built with a cobblestone drive to evoke the European aesthetic, with boutiques along each side. Dining at Spago's or a quick bite at Nate & Al's deli is the perfect ending to a day of shopping.
