Most destinations offer some sort of “trail” for travelers to easily discover some of the best of the best in a city, whether that be a music trail, beer trail, food trail or anything similar. However, Beverly Hills takes the tourism trail concept to the next level with the launch of what it’s calling Happy Trails, a series of eight urban trails combining food, landmark and cultural sites into one experience.

Each trail offers a different theme. The Sweets & Treats Trail takes travelers to bakeries, ice cream parlors, pastry shops and other sites to sample world-renowned sweet treats. The Scene and Be Seen Trail focuses on sites that make appearances in famous movies and shows, like the Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, which appears in Pretty Woman. The Great Outdoors trail, meanwhile, combines parks with some of the area’s best outdoor dining.
