Between the iconic Rodeo Drive and countless, world-class shops dotting Beverly Hills' Golden Triangle, L.A. tourists aren't the only ones frequenting the city's storied haunts—though for every passing Ferrari, Lambo or classic vintage car, you can count a tour bus or two. We Angelenos flock to the city's iconic, palm tree-studded streets for a dose of high-end retail, whether it be browsing world-class labels like Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel and Fendi or scoring the perfect gift or closet must-haves at luxury shopping malls and department stores like Barneys New York, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. But in a city known for boasting the best of the best, how do you pick out the cream of the crop? Let's face it—you can't really go wrong. Here we've mapped out some of the top specialty shops (including a chocolate shop!), under-the-radar boutiques, and local favorites of the off-Rodeo variety.
