'''Beverly Hills''' [] is an enclaved city in [[Los Angeles County]] in Southern California, surrounded almost entirely by [[Los Angeles]]. Since the 1950's 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 to being in the south, and the north being primarily residential. Most visitors come to shop or dream of shopping.
Others try and to hunt down their favorite celebrities' homes, but be careful! Many as many celebrities consider that stalking. Thanks to their friends in the state legislature, California has strict anti-stalking laws.
Note for '''Disclaimer:''' For ''BH Bevenly Hills, 90210'' fans, there is no West Beverly High. That ; the program was actually filmed in Torrance High in [[Torrance]].

Beverly Hills is divided into a flat part south of Santa Monica Boulevard that is merely middle class, a gradually sloping part north of there that is upper class, and then the actual hills north of Sunset Boulevard, which are fabulously wealthy.
Beverly Hills has several large, well-marked public parking garages in its downtown area, but they tend to fill up quickly. Virtually all of the shops and restaurants are walkable from any of the garages.

With a bar perfectly situated upon entering, there is a nice emphasis on cocktail culture to go along with the juicy steaks, fish and seafood and other classic dishes. The décor is decidedly masculine, with an east coast (think Manhattan) tenor permeating the usually noisy room. A phenomenal menu top to bottom.</eat>

* <eat name="La Dolce Vita" alt="" address="9785 Santa Monica Blvd" directions="at Wilshire Blvd" phone="+1-310-278-1845" email="" fax="" url="" hours="M-Sa 5PM-2AM" price="">This celebrated Italian eatery in Beverly Hills dates back almost 50 years and is a throwback to the good, old days in Los Angeles when folks actually dressed up for a night on the town. The place was a hotbed for the who's who. The décor remains dark and sophisticated, highlighted by the classic brick walls, adorned with glossies of Hollywood legends. Step inside and one might close their eyes and feel the presence of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin holding court in one of the plush booths. And apparently, as research points out, every president since Kennedy has enjoyed a fine meal at La Dolce Vita. Nostalgia and presidential history aside, the food remains delightful; lasagna, veal, steak, capellini, risotto, linguini and so on – it's all here and it's quite superb.</eat>
