Welcome to Beverly Hills
Home to Hollywood stars, lavish mansions, and renowned services
The area that is now known as Beverly Hills was partitioned into lots after an unsuccessful attempt to discover oil on the property in the early 1900s. It really wasn't long until the city had one of the world's most renowned zip codes, drawing the city's most affluent actors, actresses, and businesspeople. Despite its reputation, the majority of Beverly Hills is constructed on flat terrain, with Santa Monica Boulevard serving as an unofficial border between North and South.
Beverly Hills is home to some of the most opulent mansions and enclaves in the Los Angeles area. Each of Beverly Hills' classic residences incorporates local characteristics of beauty and grandeur while keeping humility and simplicity in style. American Colonial, Neoclassical, Georgian and Federal, Cape Cod, and Neo-Colonial are some of the traditional styles for home architecture here.
What to Love

Beverly Hills is a tiny town with a population of around 35,000 people. Although Beverly Hills is legally a suburb of Los Angeles, few visitors or outsiders would assume that it is a close-knit community. Many of the children who grow up in this neighborhood attend Beverly Hills High School or a private school, where they form lasting connections just like any other youngster. Life is, perhaps, a little more rich and complicated here. Here, though, there are deep roots and connections.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
This famous town is also home to some of the country's top eateries. Many residents frequent Spago, a delightful restaurant where the menus cycle fresh, seasonal specialties throughout the year, showcasing the season's local products and, where feasible, organic selections. A boutique wine selection and cocktails created by Wolfgang's beverage team are available at locations with a bar.
Beverly Hills, which is anchored by Rodeo Drive, is home to some of the world's most opulent high fashion, so expect to see finely dressed men and women going along the streets. Outdoor terrace seating is popular, and afternoon espresso drinking at sidewalk tables allows locals to unwind, enjoy the sun, and people watch. The environment is friendly, and locals also can check the Peninsula Hotel and Beverly Hills Hotel for relaxing lounges and community events.
Things to Do
Beautiful flora and public green areas, such as Beverly Gardens Park, complement the neighborhood's retail and residential boulevards. The Beverly Gardens Park also hosts the artSHOW, which takes place twice a year between May and October and features over 200 international and local artists. Visitors may connect directly with artists, sculptors, jewelers, and craftspeople, which is one of the highlights of this event. The atmosphere is relaxed, and there are food trucks, beer gardens, and wine gardens on the premises.
Locals also love the Beverly Hills Public Library, which has everything you'd expect from a neighborhood library: a large range of books, activities, and events for people of all ages, from babies to teenagers and adults. There are many "story time" times for younger children, as well as adult reading groups.
