As with traveling many different routes in Los Angeles throughout the day, how close is one's destination really isn't a matter of distance, but a matter of time! With a city like Cleveland, or Tampa Bay, you could answer this question like "downtown is 3 miles away", or "the stadium is 3 exits down the freeway".

However in Los Angeles, travel times vary so vastly, given the time of day one is making their journey. While Beverly Hills is not far from Universal Studios at all, it could take an hour to get from one to the other depending on the time of day you are traveling.

In terms of action... I love the daily bustle that goes on over at Rodeo Dr, Canon, Roxbury, etc. At night this area turns into a ghost town. You could travel slightly east on Wilshire and will find lots to get into. One of my favorite restaurants is in this area... Kate Mantilini! (Kate Mantilini happens to be from my hometown, Cleveland) This is where they shot a well known scene for the movie Heat. When I discovered this, I was sitting at the exact table that Al Pacino and Robert Deniro were having that intense conversation in the movie!

All the best,
Kieran

Beverly Hills is a great place. Restaurants are fabulous, shops are fantastic, and being able to walk around the village is a lot of fun. That being said, Los Angeles is filled with great enclaves, including West Hollywood, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Venice, Culver City... All have great nightlife as well. Universal Studios is not extremely close to Beverly Hills, but it is easy (but full of traffic at rush hour )to get to and from there through the canyons and freeways. If I can be of further help to you, please let me know.

It's hard to know 'what 'all the action' means.' It certainly is a lively, wealthy area with ritzy shops and restaurants,

No, this is a very boring location, nothing cool at all around this location.

Though Sunset Blvd is already home to some of the best action with the Mondrian, Andaz, House of Blues, Katana, Rivabella, Sunset Tower Hotel, Boa, etc, etc...

Doheny Estates, the Bird Streets and Sunset Plaza have some of the most breathtaking view homes you can imagine located only a stones throw down to our world famous Sunset Blvd.

, I’m particularly plugged-into the Sunset Plaza area of Hollywood Hills (East) which neighbors Beverly Hills above the world famous Sunset Blvd

Beverly Hills has a world famous prestige and mystique that appeals to high net worth individuals on an International scale. There is "exclusive" action (private parties/events) that you'll need to be personally invited to or know someone who is (in most cases). If you have those kind of connections... you're likely already in good company. If not, call me up and I'll introduce you to a few people. Rodeo Drive is where you can find a great deal of "action" in regard to maxing out your credit cards on a shopping spree and then enjoy some fine dining action with some delicious wine.

Los Angeles is a diverse, exciting and sprawling city! There are different crowds and vibes in every neighborhood. I think Beverly Hills is a classy place to do some window shopping and grab lunch but action is taking place everywhere. You will need to tour around until you find what clicks with you. Let me know if you need a guide :)

Beverly Hills is close to great shopping and restaurants as well as it's near other cities that may contain "more action".

It's close to the beach cities Santa Monica and Venice. It's also close to the areas where movies and music videos are shot: Hollywood, West Hollywood, San Fernando Valley and Universal Studio. Also, the famous Sunset Blvd runs through Beverly Hills!

There is so much to do in and around Beverly Hills, I'm sure you'll have enough action for a handful of years!

It really depends on what action you are looking for. I think BH is a little quiet for my tastes. West Hollywood, Hollywood or Downtown LA is better for action in terms of nightlife.

BH is not too far from Universal but it is a town surrounded by poor road infrastructure so it can take a long time to drive to places. Up to an hour drive to Universal would not be unheard of.

If you need to have quick access to Universal and are looking for action, then Hollywood or maybe Silver Lake may be a better choice.

Let me know if you need any more info on neighborhoods in LA.

Hi Maria,

Beverly Hills is certainly a place of action. The city is centrally located near Hollywood, Century City, Westwood, Santa Monica, Downtown LA and more. Whether you have designs to shop, eat, conduct business or simply try to spot a celebrity, there is much to do. The drive time to Universal Studios really depends on the traffic, which can be a challenge. Depending on traffic you can expect a 30 minute to 1 hour drive time.

Should you have any further questions, please let me know. Thank you for your question.

Warmest Regards,

Matt
