In one of the most famous neighborhoods not only in California, but the world, Beverly Hills apartments for rent almost sell themselves. With its eclectic history of celebrities and the motion picture industry, its glamorous personality nearly shadows the fact that it is also a great place for the average person to live, work and play. With its year-round Mediterranean climate, excellent public and private schools and pro-business environment, many Los Angeles residents are giving this famous neighborhood a second look. According to information from the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau, the community has seen an increase in population with more than 34,000 residents.
With its ideal location in the valley of the Santa Monica foothills, the areas around Beverly Hills were a perfect space for Los Angeles' first settlers before California was admitted into the union in 1850. During the 1920s, when the movie industry in Hollywood began to take off, the areas west of the recording studios became a prime spot for real estate. Despite the glamorous city's name, many residents here live in the "flats," and many citizens here are not the star-studded movie stars you might expect. Loaded with all the amenities of big-city living but still possessing the community roots that it started with, many Los Angeles residents are calling Beverly Hills home.
There are many community events in Beverly Hills for residents to take part in, including their Earth Day celebration and local farmers market. Some of Los Angeles' best shopping, restaurants and nightlife are found in this exciting and youthful town. Main thoroughfares like Rodeo Drive and Sunset Boulevard are not only home to celebrity sightings, but also great areas for dining.
One of Los Angeles' most quiet getaways located in Beverly Hills is Franklin Canyon Park, a scenic green space popular for weddings and other public events because of its beautiful trails and stunning views of the city.
