Beverly Hills is perhaps one of the most famous cities in the United States, due to its connection with the entertainment industry. It was first a planned community that catered to a particular demographic, but in the past few decades it has seen an increase in diversity. Beverly Hills is home to the Fortune 500 company Live Nation Entertainment and the media company Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM). It is also home to The Beverly Center, a large mall with high fashion designers, as well as the famous Rodeo Drive shopping district. While Beverly Hills is a luxurious community that is intimately connected to the entertainment industry, it also has small-scale events, such as a weekly farmer's market, that help the city maintain an intimate feel. Despite its popularity, Beverly Hills has been able to enact measures that help keep it livable instead of turning into a major tourist attraction.
