    Issue 1: Hollywood

    There are plenty of pools in Hollywood, but this saltwater one—ringed by kumquat trees, intricate tiled walls and cabanas—is something to see. It’s on the roof of Petit Ermitage, a European-style hotel with a great view of Hollywood. Lounge and sip a French 75 between dips, wander through the roof’s butterfly sanctuary (which is recognized by the National Wildlife Federation), or dine by candelight at sunset. The rooms are pretty and elegantly appointed, and the hotel’s art collection is divine, but you’ll spend most of your time poolside.
