  WHAT’S LIVING IN Bel Air LIKE?

Home to a number of celebrities and entertainment executives, Bel-Air is an upscale residential neighborhood populated with mansions and expensive cars. It boasts one of the highest median incomes in all of LA but is not a particularly diverse community.

It's also quiet: it doesn't get the tourist buses that go through its neighbor to the south, Beverly Hills, and there aren't many dining or shopping options…although you're not far from other areas with more to do.

There aren't any apartments here (at least officially). Instead, properties are all single-family homes with room to spare. And for those with kids, there are a couple excellent elementary schools in the neighborhood.

Bel-Air is bordered on the north by Sherman Oaks, on the east by Beverly Hills, on the south by Westwood, and on the west by Brentwood.
