It’s pricey and pretentious, but no trip to LA would be complete without a saunter along glittery Rodeo Dr, the famous three-block ribbon of style where sample-size fembots browse for Escada and Prada.

Most people gravitate to Euro-flavored Via Rodeo, a cobbled lane lined with outdoor cafes for primo people-watching.

For Frank Lloyd Wright fans, there’s the 1953 Anderton Court, a zany zig-zag construction, although clearly not his best work. Also check out the 1988 O’Neill House, a few blocks north. It doesn’t have a famous architect, but the free-form, art-nouveau design in the tradition of Catalán master Antonio Gaudí is definitely one of the more imaginative structures in the area.
