Beverly Hills is more than just movie stars and fancy cars. I have been a resident of Beverly Hills for the past four years and I couldn't think of a more friendly and beautiful city to explore and live in. The local Farmers Market is a great place to visit by yourself or can make it a family event, the smell of fresh strawberries and blueberries fill the air, as everyone line up to get a tasty homemade baked good treat. The atmosphere is almost like a neighborhood block party with great music, friendly faces and so many booths to try new things made and grown here in California. And after visiting the farmers market, the Beverly Hills park is a great place to relax and just enjoy the view of beautiful trees, its also the perfect backdrop to take family photos. The best thing about Beverly Hills is that everything is so accessible, whether you're looking to do a little shopping or take an evening stroll through the park, everything is within walking distance.

Beverly Hills is an amazing place. Granted, it is full of rich and famous people; but overall, it's so much more than that. It is a city laden with parks, local families, good food, well-dressed people, and successful businesses planted on clean city streets, and frequented by the affluent and middle class, alike. Beverly Hills just tries to be a city in which the neighborhoods are safe, the houses are tasteful, and the middle class exist.

The apartments where I live are poorly kept. Strangely many friends of mine think they are nice apartments, but once you live here you realize what a drawback they are. Culturally they attract people of diverse background who struggle to make it here in BH. Unfortunately they behave retarded when overlooking other neighbors and disregarding privacy. I've never experienced this in other cities outside BH. For example in Culver City, there is a great deal of privacy and respect. You just don't get it here. People are trashy!
