U.S. News & World Report puts the Beverly Hills street before all others when it comes to holiday shopping.

Rodeo Drive tops the list of the 10 best places to shop in the country, according to a recent U.S. News & World Report article.  

“There's no better way in L.A. (or more specifically, Beverly Hills) to prep for the gift-giving season then to motor your convertible down to Rodeo Drive for some designer duds,” the “America's Best Shopping Streets” story reads. 

The 200, 300 and 400 blocks of North Rodeo Drive, between Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards, are famous for their high-end stores such as , , ,  and . 

“It’s well known that the shopping experience on Rodeo Drive is world class,” Mayor Barry Brucker said in a statement. “I am delighted that U.S. News points out how exciting and entertaining it is to shop, dine or simply stroll around a vibrant urban village, rather than the typical mall.” 

The stretch of shopping paradise was also the location of the city’s “Let it Sparkle” , which featured a display of crystals and an electronic ticker tape that let people share social media messages with the community.
