Things to do in Beverly Hills

Beverly Hills is a small town of only 5.7 square miles and 34,000 people, completely surrounded by the City of Los Angeles, except for a one-mile border to the east that it shares with the city of West Hollywood. Given its small size, there aren’t as many attractions as other areas, but there is certainly enough to do in Beverly Hills to fill a lazy weekend. The best known activities are shopping, eating and enjoying the many luxury hotels in the city if they are within your budget. If not, browsing the designer stores and million-dollar mansions is free. Spa and beauty treatments and plastic surgery are also popular activities for visitors to Beverly Hills.
Beverly Hills can also be a good base for exploring the attractions of West Hollywood, Hollywood, and Santa Monica.
