Beverly hills is a beautiful and lovely city very close to Los Angeles downtown, as well as close to the beach, mountains, Hollywood and many great places. It is a great city to live, if you are rich and can effort to buy a house here. Best living is in the hills. We live in heart of Beverly Hills, right next to the very famous Rodeo Drive shopping street. It gets very loud here on daily basis. Helicopters, loud cars anytime of the day and night. Police helicopters car chases for hours is very annoying. It is not as safe as you think. We had car broken into several times, stuff stolen from car. Many times I saw someone walking around trying to open our back door late at night or early morning - many burglars do come to Beverly Hills. Apartments are super old. Some nearly 100 year old, as well as many houses. You can hear every word from any neighbor and we got about 20+.Everything keeps breaking and falling apart.

Yes, the place is very affluent and I am fortunate to be blessed to live here, in this safe neighborhood with an exemplary emergency response time and a world-class hospital only a mile away. But the place is so filled with superficial rich people who have no genuine personality and it is part of the reason I am moving away for college. The whole place is very cliquey and isolated; it definitely feels like a small town.
I've lived in Beverly Hills for about 6 months now. I attend Beverly Hills High School, which is an excellent public school with friendly staff, accomplished teachers, and an abundant amount of opportunities. Also, the general energy of Beverly Hills promotes a healthy lifestyle. There are plenty of restaurants with fresh ingredients, and almost everything is within walking distance.
However, to live in a place with such history and reputation comes with it's setbacks. The commute time to places that are just 2 miles away may be anywhere from 5 minutes to 45 minutes, depending on the time of day. It is not a very safe place either. My apartment building had a robbery about a month back, and it's very common for people to sneak in and steal items from the parking garage. Other than these flaws, Beverly Hills is a great place to live.
