Bel Air, Los Angeles, CA
Located only 12 miles west of downtown Los Angles, Bel Air is a lovely neighborhood set into the Santa Monica Mountains. The town borders the main campus of the University of California, Los Angeles. Bel Air, Beverly Hills, and Brentwood are known as the “three B’s” – a very affluent Los Angeles area. See more here.
Getty View Park
As an affluent neighborhood, you would expect to see some beautiful parks in Bel Air. One of these beautiful parks is Getty View Park. Located at 1399 Casiano Road, it offers an easy 2.6-mile hiking trail that takes you up a gentle slope until you can see some great views of the area. Of course, with a name like Getty View Park, you will see the Getty Center when you get up to the top. See here for information about Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, CA.
The Getty Center
The Getty Center houses the art collection of J. Paul Getty and other works of art. In this museum, you will find medieval manuscripts and contemporary photography. You will also find pre-20th-century European paintings and sculptures.
Getting there is half the fun. The estate is on a hill, so you can either enjoy a leisurely 15-minute walk or you can take a tram from the parking area.
