LA’s most expensive zip code is 90210

Beverly Hills is an institution. The glamour that Hollywood Boulevard lacks is more than compensated by the many Ferraris, huge mansions and swaying palm trees. This is the spot where the rich and famous live and shop, and where flashy Rolex watches and chauffeur driven limousines are the norm.

Contrary to what most people think, Beverly Hills is a city and not a neighbourhood. It is part of Los Angeles but has its own mayor and police force. The wide streets with countless palm trees exude unprecedented perfection and glamour. Even the fire hydrants on the street are painted in a shiny silver colour. The neighbourhood is primarily home to pop stars and movie stars. The zip code of every house begins with 90210, famous from the television series Beverly Hills 90210.

An enthusiastic guide will tell you which movie star has the largest mansion and point out behind which hedge Jennifer Aniston lives.

Big spender

Money is made for spending and that is not a problem in Beverly Hills. Between Wilshire Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard lies the Golden Triangle of Beverly Hills: 7 streets packed with shops and restaurants. The triangle is bordered by Santa Monica Boulevard in the west and Canon Drive in the east. The heart of the elegant district is Rodeo Drive, one of the world's most famous shopping streets and synonymous for unbridled luxury; shoppers won’t get far without a credit card. Practically every major brand is represented along this expensive shopping street and some shops are open by appointment only. However, you don’t need to spend money to soak up the atmosphere of this upscale neighbourhood; even window shopping is quite the experience. And you may even bump into some celebrities.
