Who’s never heard of¬†Beverly Hills? The ¬†streets are exposed to the world through Hollywood movies; There is always a celebrity shopping on Rodeo Drive in the magazines; and if even artists have written songs about it, it is nearly impossible to find someone who has not heard this name! Beverly Hills is probably the most well-known neighborhood in the city for these and other reasons.

Things to do in Beverly Hills

The Tongva, the region’s natives, were drawn here by the area’s predominant streams, which they named Rancho de las Aguas, and came to regard it as a sacred region. Later, European settlers arrived, occupied the land, and wiped out a large portion of the indigenous population.

They began to build adobe ranches and used the vast land for crops and livestock. In 1900, a group of successful businessmen decided to settle in this area, which they named Beverly Hills, and from there they began to build the city’s first streets, including one of the most well-known today, Rodeo Drive.

In 1912, the Beverly Hills Hotel was built as the next step. This event drew hundreds of artists, who were enchanted by the city and decided to settle there, resulting in the construction of magnificent mansions. Pickfair, a residence built on a 22-hectare lot with 42 rooms spread across four floors, was the most striking of all. This house was the first in Los Angeles to have its own swimming pool and was home to silent film stars Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford.

Beverly Hills became synonymous with glitz and glam from that point forward. Every day, numerous parties were held in the dazzling mansions, attracting millionaires from around the world to come and experience the luxurious atmosphere that still characterizes Beverly Hills.
