In most minds, Beverly HIlls needs no introduction. "90210" and "The Hills" are only the most recent of the many movies and TV shows that have catapulted this tiny neighborhood into the limelight. Yes, everyone here is probably richer than you are and more famous to boot. Yes, if you want to see celebrities, this is probably the place to do it. But it's also a nice place to drive around and dream a little- sunny, palm tree-lined streets are occupied by fancy sports cars and chauffeured limousines turning into the driveways of massive houses. While in the neighborhood, make sure to check out the Beverly Hills Hotel and Rodeo Drive.
Nice for driving around to see how some of LA's rich and fancy live. Don't really expect to spot any celeb bringing out the trash here, but walk around Rodeo drive and you might have more luck in this area of expensive shopping streets.
When I was at UCLA I had to commute via Beverly Hills/Bel Air every single day. I don't want to say it was a pain in the ass seeing all those fance Range Rovers, but I must admit people living there, the cars they drive and the houses, or palaces they own, kind of lets me envy them. However try to grab a 1$ so-called "star map" from some of the guys sitting on the street, rent a car and spend some hours driving through bel air and beverly hills.It's not only way more fun, more importantly it saves you around 50 bucks if you were going with one of those official "star tours"
