Yes, that 90210 Place

Perhaps this is the only city of which one doesn't have to guess the zip code. Oh, Ms. Beverly Hills! She is a stunner...so exquisite in tastes and immaculate. How she is always "keeping up appearances", demanor-wise and physically so! Despite all the glamour and prestige attached to her, in some ways , Beverly proves to be quite on the normal side. Though one can never call her a Plain Jane!

She's got expensive taste!

Beverly is high class, sophisticated craving the best in fashion, food and drink, automobiles, and everything else under the sun.

Of course, Beverly must have the most exclusive luxurious names on her buildings. Some include Bvulgari and Saks (pictured). There are a some dozens along famed Rodeo Dr, but many others steps away.

The Ordinary Extraordinary

.Getting away from the Rodeo image of Bev, there is a side of her that can be said to be....ordinary. It's really so. There are not just super high end boutiques here but also run of the mill stores like Gap and Crate and Barrel, Starbucks, simple parks, playgrounds and churches.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:No dirty areas, fashion capital, appreciative of art, excellent dining
  • Cons:too trendy and fairy tale that it seems unreal, some snooty people, some way expensive shops
  • In a nutshell:Beverly Hills: See this fantasy world at least once!
