The City of Beverly Hills offers a 40-minute narrated trolley tour that costs just $5, but for those of you renegades, what follows is a partially driving, partially walking independent tour. As with everything in LA, things are spread out so a walk can end up being more of a hike. The small town of Beverly Hills is a little bit more manageable than the rest of the city on foot. This flexible walking/driving day tour will take you to some of the main sites and locales (including the infamous Rodeo Drive) of this luxury city-within-a-city.
Beverly Hills was officially opened in 1906 and named after Beverly Farms in Beverly, Massachusetts by the Rodeo Land and Water Company. So, to start with, its roots have already been transplanted.
