Beverly Drive

Beverly Drive is a major north-south roadway in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles.

South Beverly Drive begins northbound at Harlow Avenue, a small street just north of the Santa Monica Freeway in the city of Los Angeles. It passes through the residential neighborhood of Beverlywood and intersects with Pico Boulevard before entering the city of Beverly Hills at Whitworth Avenue. Between Olympic and Wilshire Boulevards, it becomes markedly commercial, with dining and shopping establishments throughout.

North Beverly Drive begins northbound after Wilshire, with a continuation of luxury stores and restaurants. North of Santa Monica Boulevard it crosses Beverly Gardens Park and enters one of the city's more lavish residential neighborhoods. Before crossing Sunset Boulevard it approaches a broad and notoriously congested three-way intersection with Canon Drive and Lomitas Avenue, with Will Rogers Memorial Park at its northwest corner. At the intersection of Beverly and Sunset lies the historic Beverly Hills Hotel, one of the city's most notable landmarks. It continues northbound to Coldwater Canyon Park and Beverly Hills Fire Station #2, where arterial traffic merges onto Coldwater Canyon Drive and crosses the Santa Monica Mountains to connect with the eastern San Fernando Valley.

It is possible to continue north on Beverly by turning left at the merger with Coldwater Canyon and passing west of the park. The terrain becomes noticeably hillier and later mountainous as the street enters the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. Franklin Canyon Reservoir is directly to the east, and later, Franklin Canyon Park with its idyllic Upper Franklin Canyon Reservoir.

The road ends just north of Desford Drive in Beverly Hills at a private residence.
