Every corner is different and this versatility and diversity is proof that a visit or a move is definitely worth it.

Beverly Hills Plams & Mansions – Life of the Rich and Beautiful
Beverly Hills is known as the home of the rich and beautiful. Here you will find the typical long streets with huge palm trees.

The buildings are mostly luxurious from the outside as well as from the inside and have their own style. Sunset Boulevard, which precedes its name, also runs through Beverly Hills. The famous Rodeo Drive is also located in the middle of Beverly Hills, here a unique and luxurious shopping experience takes place and tourists also like to stroll through the shopping area to get a glimpse of the life of the rich and beautiful. The main residents of this district are singers, actors, producers, athletes and directors.
Downtown – vibrant downtown and financial district
Downtown Los Angeles, or DTLA for short, is practically like the classic downtown in big cities, but since there is no such thing to be found in LA, as each part of the city has its very own life. If you like to try a lot of different restaurants, DTLA is perfect for you. A huge selection makes it not easy to decide. Sports fans should be familiar with this part of town, as this is also where you will find the Staples Center, which hosts sporting events such as NBA basketball games and ice hockey. Especially cultural influences from the Asian culture, like Chinatown or Little Tokyo are located in Downtown. The Financial District is also located here, and its office buildings provide many jobs for residents. Older and historic buildings have been rebuilt and redesigned in large numbers and thus architecture lovers will always find something to look at and inspire in Downtown.
The Valley – Everyone has probably heard of the legendary ‘Valley’ in Los Angeles. No matter if in movies, music or in a series this place is often picked up. This part of the city offers a huge variety of recreational activities and production centers. For those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this is the perfect place to take a long walk in Runyon Canyon. Whether you are a fan of sports who likes to go jogging, or for a walk with a beautiful view of the city, there is something for everyone here. If you’re a fan of America’s film culture, you’ll be familiar with Warner Bros Studios and NBC Studios, both located in the Valley. You’ll also find North Hollywood, or NoHo for short, which is considered one of the most artistic neighborhoods. There are a variety of live theaters, museums, and a huge selection of bars and hip restaurants. Woodland Hills, which also exists here, is considered the most family-friendly suburb in the Valley. These have huge malls, farms with horses and other animals, not to mention arguably the most stunning sunsets. If you’re looking for some peace and quiet here, a visit to the Japanese Garden in Woodley Park is a great way to do it. Designed by Dr. Koichi Kawana, there is the possibility to meditate and pause in one of the Zen meditation gardens.
Malibu – Actually not an official part of the city of Los Angeles, but definitely worth a visit for anyone moving to California. The very special flair here is for many the reason to choose a beach house directly on Malibu Beach. No wonder, where better to enjoy the warm Californian sun than on one of the most beautiful and probably most relaxing beaches in the world. Celebrities who want to live close to the City of Angels, but still enjoy the feeling of seclusion and privacy will find their place here. Among others, Miranda Kerr, Cher, Tom Hanks and Angelina Jolie live in Malibu. They can walk out of their beach house in the morning and probably forget all the stress about career, paparazzi, etc. while breathing in the sea air. Malibu is a true cult place and stretches over 50 kilometers along the Pacific Ocean. It is also a paradise for real surfers. If you know how to surf here, you should go to the Malibu Pier and you will find the perfect waves. In the north of Malibu you can actually see grey whales.
