8:05 AM

Begin your day with a "designer omelet" at the Avec Nous - the historically hip hangout of Hollywood elites - located within the Viceroy L'Ermitage Beverly Hills. While the chances of seeing a star at the table next to you are high, don't gawk - the key is acting like you belong. The difference between you and them? They aren't eating on the house; that's the VIP treatment you'll get through SELECT's unique perk of a 100 USD Food & Beverage credit.

9:10 AM

After breakfast, start your adventure out with a jaunt among masterpieces: The Getty Center is a sprawling institution solely centered on the fantastic, the beautiful and the awe-inspiring. The architecture itself is the latter, as Pritzker Prize-winning Richard Meier's modern design marries the breathtaking views to create an air of magnificence. Inside, works of art from medieval times to modern day captivate your imagination.

12:20 PM

Pay a visit to Rodeo Drive -the premier place for luxury shopping in all of America. Contained within three city blocks are over 100 shops, boutiques and hotels delivering the epitome of style and service. Whether you're just window shopping or looking to treat yourself to a new look, it's easy to feel like royalty among the posh pampering.

1:31 PM

Head to Manhattan Beach for a breezy seafood lunch at Fishing With Dynamite. A humble seafood shack, its raw bar has already cemented it as legend in the city's food scene. Whether you order the oyster platter or the yellowtail tacos, it pairs perfectly with several glasses of cava - which also pairs perfectly with watching the nearby beach volleyball games.

3:00 PM

This is the holy land for cinema. All the major film studios - Warner Brothers, Paramount, Sony Pictures and Universal Studios - offer studio tours. If you'd prefer a more low-energy option, the City of Angels also happens to be the city of historic theaters. There's really no wrong pick of where or what to see, but Landmark Theatre on Pico Boulevard is an apt choice. Besides sporting a rotating display of costumes and movie memorabilia in addition to a wine bar, the films screened here are often weeks ahead of their national release.

5:22 PM

Stretch your legs with an easy stroll around Griffith Park. Here you can hike to the iconic Hollywood Sign, explore the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens, take a spin on the historic merry-go-round and ride one of the three trains. Don't miss the amazing views at Griffith Observatory, where you can spy panoramic views of the Los Angeles skyline night and day.

8:00 PM

For a city as vibrant as L.A., nightlife possibilities are endless. If you're looking for something unique and wholly inimitable, Old Lightning is your best choice. This speakeasy demands a reservation and enforces a strict no phones-allowed policy. The payoff? Over 1,000 bottles of frankly impossible-to-find, or in some cases completely decommissioned, alcohol sourcing your cocktails of choice. Make no mistake about it, this is one of the best collections in the world, the sort of occasion few get to experience and even fewer know to seek out.

11:59 PM

Return to the Viceroy L'Ermitage Beverly Hills. On the way back to your chic abode, take a detour to the rooftop pool. It may be a little late for a swim, but the views over the surrounding Beverly Hills are more than enough to provide a splash of awe - to remind you that this is what it feels like when you're on top of the world.
