Beverly Hills/Westside Attractions in Los Angeles

Beverly Hills is an older, wealthy neighborhood featuring a lot of premiere cultural destinations. Similarly, the Westside of Los Angeles is very much the "good" side of town; over the years all this wealth and influence have helped make this area a great place to visit.

The major musuems include the Hammer Museum, an art museum founded by wealthy oil magnate Armand Hammer. There is also is the magnifient Getty Center, founded by J. Paul Getty and his vast oil wealth, the large complex is perched on its own hilltop looking over the city.

UCLA also adds to the cultural scene with destinations like the Fowler Museum, the Hannah Carter Japanese Garden, the Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden, and the UCLA Film and Television Archive.

Another major media museum/archive in the area is the Paley Center for Media, an organization founded by the former head of CBS in 1975. Here you can watch video material from their vast collection.

Also included on this list is the Pierce Brother Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery; this 2-acre cemetery is dense with the graves of celebrities (including Roy Orbison, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Zappa, John Cassavetes, and many more).
