Beverly Hills is a city in Los Angeles County, California, United States, surrounded by the cities of Los Angeles and West Hollywood. Sometimes merely known by one of its primary ZIP codes, “90210”, it has been home to actors and celebrities. The city also includes the shopping district Rodeo Drive and the Beverly Hills Oil Field. Just outside the city limits to the west lies the Los Angeles Country Club. Other locations commonly associated with the city include the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the Beverly Center, just outside the city limits to the east.
In spite of the city’s name, most residents live in the “flats” of Beverly Hills, which is a relatively flat land that includes all of the city itself. The houses situated in the hillside north of Sunset Boulevard have a much higher value than the average housing price for the rest of the city. Houses south of Wilshire Boulevard have more urban square and rectangular lots, in general smaller than those to the north. There are also more apartment buildings south of Wilshire Blvd. than anywhere else in Beverly Hills, and the average house value south of Wilshire is the lowest in Beverly Hills.
The city is served by Beverly Hills Unified School District. Beverly Hills also has several private schools.
