Beverly Hills is one of the world’s wealthiest residential areas, patrolled by more cops per capita than anywhere else in the USA. Glorified by the elite shops of Rodeo Drive, squeaky-clean streets and ostentatious displays of wealth, the city is undoubtedly the height of LA pretension. Luckily, there are a number of decent and unassuming spots for visitors interested in things other than commodities. The Paley Center for Media, 465 N Beverly Drive, is one such place, vividly chronicling eighty years of our media-saturated age, and best for its voluminous library of shows, where you can take in everything from I Love Lucy to The Simpsons. For an overview of Beverly Hills’ shopping and the area’s art and architecture, take a trip on the Beverly Hills Trolley, departing hourly from the corner of Rodeo and Dayton Way.
