Welcome to Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills is an international symbol of the ultimate in luxury. It’s clearly the most famous area in Los Angeles County and perhaps Southern California. It’s both a place and a symbol. From the galleries and cafes of downtown’s Golden Triangle to some of the world’s priciest opulent real estate, Beverly Hills lives up to its gleaming reputation.
Beverly Hills is divided into north and south sections by Santa Monica Boulevard. Residents still refer to the northern and southern areas of the city as “north of the tracks” or “south of the tracks.” North of the tracks refers to the City of Beverly Hills and parts of the City of Los Angeles that reside north of Santa Monica Boulevard up to Mulholland Drive. South of the tracks refers to Downtown Beverly Hills and adjacent residential neighborhoods.
