If shopping in Beverly Hills seems a bit nostalgic...well, it should! The Beverly Hills shopping district was developed many years ago, before malls were "invented." Shopping on Main Streets throughout the country was just "what people did."

 

A lot of "yesterday" remains in the Beverly Hills shopping district today...which adds to the charm of the area. Do you remember what it was like before malls and superstores came along, extending shopping hours until 9 pm...or even later? Stores used to close in the late afternoon...which is still the practice in many Beverly Hills stores, which close around 5 to 7 pm.

Do you remember when saving change to feed parking meters was something that always stayed in the back of your mind? Well, Beverly Hills still has on-street parking meters, and you'll need to save your quarters to feed them! (Of course, there are parking lots, as well...both self-parking and valet. We'll talk about parking lot locations at the end of this page.)

For awhile, when indoor shopping malls were the rage, the Beverly Hills shopping district seemed rather quaint. Of course, times change, and now it's OUTDOOR malls that are ultra-popular in Southern California. And, the Beverly Hills district can seem like one giant outdoor mall, with stores beckoning you from every direction!
