Though it may seem more like a fashion statement than a real place, Beverly Hills is actually filled with real people doing real things at all hours of the day. Funny, because as a rolling joke, it is said that no one is actually from Beverly Hills, nor does anyone ever die in Beverly Hills—the area has no hospitals and no mortuary, so, in a way, this is true. However, 34,000 residents call this 5.7 mile stretch of greater Los Angeles home, and during the day, those numbers swell to almost 200,000. Why? Because aside from being a Southern California cultural icon, there’s plenty of fun things to do and see.
