Doheny Drive is a major north–south thoroughfare mostly through Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, in Los Angeles County, California.

It is named for Edward L. Doheny, an early 20th century oil tycoon based in Los Angeles.

Route[edit]

It starts a few blocks south of Pico Boulevard in the city of Los Angeles, and travels northwards, crossing Wilshire Boulevard, Santa Monica Boulevard, and other east/west streets, to end after crossing Sunset Boulevard.

Doheny encounters few traffic lights, making it a relatively quick north–south trip. From Santa Monica Boulevard to Sunset Boulevard condominiums and houses predominate. Doheny Drive forms the western end of the Sunset Strip, with Laurel Canyon Boulevard−Crescent Heights Boulevard the eastern end.
