“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
One of the most coveted addresses in the United States, Bel Air is situated between Beverly Hills and Brentwood in the hills north of Sunset Boulevard. Winding roads lead into the canyon, where many multi-million dollar homes are enclosed by tall gates or thick vegetation. Most of Bel Air is exclusive and private, like the Bel Air Country Club, which has a golf course designed by George C. Thomas that opened in 1925. Restaurants in the area include Vibrato Grill jazz club and the newly renovated Hotel Bel-Air, which features a Wolfgang Puck restaurant and a glamorous lounge. UCLA's Hannah Carter Japanese Garden is also located in Bel Air.
