Quite an interesting fact – despite its name, the central part of Beverly Hills is located in a flat area. Wilshire Boulevard, Santa Monica Boulevard and the streets near their intersection are the most comfortable pedestrian areas of the city. Beverly Hills become hilly north of Sunset Boulevard, the place where visitors will see numerous posh estates that cost a fortune. There are also high-end neighborhoods close to the city, such as Westwood, Century City, and West Hollywood. Tourists need a car to get to neighborhoods, but the best way to explore the center of the city is simply to walk on its tree-lined streets, enjoying plazas, trendy shops, and endless restaurants.
The history of Beverly Hills dates back to the mid-1700s. It was the time when first Spanish explorers appeared on this land, attracted by water resources. The early name of the city was different - El Rodeo de las Aguas that can be translated as Gathering of the Waters. Later, the region became famous for its lima bean farms, turning to the “home of movie stars” in the 20s and 30s of the 20th century. The ties to the film industry have not disappeared. Even though the city has only 34,000 residents, the daytime population of Beverly Hills is more than 200,000. The city is home to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the most famous talent agencies in the United States, and numerous entertainment companies. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
