Beverly Hills’ ultimate ‘secret’ garden is tucked among the manicured estates north of Sunset Blvd. Virginia Robinson, wife of department-store mogul Harry Robinson, had a passion for plants and devoted much of her life to creating this sloping, six-acre symphony of trees and flowers that can only be experienced on guided tours.

You’ll also get to peek inside the Robinsons’ magnificent beaux-arts mansion, where Fred Astaire, Ronald Reagan and other Hollywood royalty used to pop by for a game of bridge and a stiff whiskey. Make reservations at least two weeks in advance, and even further ahead in spring.
