No matter if you are a local of L.A or just visiting and looking to go for a drive, Beverly Glen Blvd. is a very scenic route. It travels through various parts of the county, hillside, and intersects with many famous streets, such Santa Monica Blvd. and Ventura Blvd.
West Los Angeles is connected by five major routes to San Fernando Valley. Beverly Glen Boulevard is one of those main routes, while the others include Sepulveda Blvd., The San Diego Freeway (405), Coldwater Canyons, and Laurel.
Beverly Glen Blvd. starts in West Los Angeles at the Rancho Park Golf Course (Pico Blvd.) through to Ventura Blvd. and passing through Wilshire Blvd. and Santa Monica Blvd. Along the way, the route travels nearby locations such as Sinai Temple, Century City, and L.A Country Club. In addition, Beverly Glen Blvd. is a marker for the Westwood Prosperity Unit’s eastern border, which was developed as the Westwood neighborhood’s foundation by Janss Investment Company.
The further north the road travels, it also joins with Sunset Blvd. close to UCLA, passing Bel Air’s gated communities, and Harvard-Westlake middle school campus. Hills traveling south of Mulholland Dr. and north of Sunset Dr. are well-known as Beverly Glen. The route travels parallel to gated communities of the wealthy Bel-Air properties.
When Mulholland is passed, Beverly Glen Blvd. changes direction, going west. At this point, the route passes by Sherman Oaks, and the lovely hillside homes along the area. Meanwhile, a section known as ‘Stilt Street’ includes a group of houses designed and built on stilts. The row has 20 stilt homes, which spans nearly the entire Valley’s length, from architect block west to Van Nuys Blvd.
Located east of the 405 San Diego Freeway and Sepulveda Blvd., Beverly Glen Blvd. becomes a back-up route for commuters. Often taken by travelers when the 405-freeway traffic is heavy, Beverly Glen Blvd. and Sepulveda Blvd. can both become congested with traffic.
