This home and the gardens are a must see. We were so impressed with the tour and our guide. Lovely gardens. This is something to do for adults and older adults. I don't feel that children would care for this or appreciate it.

today you can still feel its small town origins, even
though it has become a major tourist attraction and
business center for the entertainment industry. This
town lives up to its reputation as an area full of

with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial
center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of
