Walked The Shopping Blocks Of Rodeo Drive

I haven't been to a lot of places in Southern California. I've been to Disneyland, of course, but my favorite is
Medieval Times. I had never been to Beverly Hills before, so I thought it would be a cool place to check out while we were taking a break from the Games.

After a short lunch close by, J and I spotted a parking space on the other side of Wilshire. The shopping section of Rodeo Drive runs three blocks from Wilshire Blvd. to Santa Monica Blvd. We didn't get very far before seeing a gorgeous Ferrari.

Of course, the shops on the street look very nice, and all the famous, expensive brands like Chanel and Louis Vittan are represented.

It was pretty cool to finally see this area in person, but I have neither the interest nor the income for shopping here. However, one thing that did fascinate me (and one of the reasons I really wanted to go here) was that there was a building designed by famous architect
Frank Lloyd Wright. The Anderton Court Shops building has very unusual angles and a unique looking tower.

J and I walked in and around it to see what the structure looked like.

Ultimately, I'd probably not go back to Rodeo Drive for a while, but it was cool to see the kinds of stores they have there, the beautiful cars on the street, and the tourists (like me) looking around in amazement.
