Celebrities can be found all over Los Angeles, but the Hollywood Hills are going to have the greatest concentration of actors, rock stars, and other assorted famous people. The Hills and the surrounding neighborhoods like Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills, and Bel Air make up the most star-studded area in the US. Other similarly popular neighborhoods among celebrities include Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Calabasas, and Santa Monica, although most Hollywood sightseeing and celebrity homes tours will stick to the Hills.
Here’s Where Hollywood Sightseeing and Celebrity Tours Will Take You
Put together, Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills, and Bel Air make up Los Angeles’s “Platinum Triangle,” one of the most expensive housing markets in the entire world. With a median price of over $1000 per square foot, the Platinum Triangle is highly sought after as a stomping ground for real estate agents, and many of the largest and most expensive homes in the US are within the triangle. In 2020, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos spent $165 million on an estate in Beverly Hills first built by onetime Warner Brothers head Jack L. Warner. Despite the hefty price tag, Bezos’s purchase still comes in at only the second most expensive home sale in the US, having been beaten out by a $238 million purchase of four floors in a Manhattan skyscraper right on Central Park. If the absurd spending and opulence on display here are making you a little queasy, then congrats! You’re a human being.
