Beverly Hills is an enclaved city in Los Angeles County in Southern California, surrounded almost entirely by Los Angeles. Since the 1950s, Beverly Hills has marketed itself as a high-end shopping paradise and home of the rich and famous, which still rings true today; its reputation has even been the basis of a few popular TV shows such as The Beverly Hillbillies and Beverly Hills, 90210. Santa Monica Boulevard bisects the city, with most of the businesses being in the south, the north being primarily residential. Most visitors come to shop or dream of shopping.
Others try to hunt down their favorite celebrities' homes, but be careful as many celebrities consider that stalking. Thanks to their friends in the state legislature, California has strict anti-stalking laws.
Note for Bevenly Hills, 90210 fans, there is no West Beverly High; the program was filmed in Torrance High in Torrance.
