LMAO! Now now, we're pretty reasonable people. Very interesting.
Palm Beach is probably the most similar to Beverly Hills as far as scenery is concerned, but... I'll just leave it at that. lol

You're showing high-rise luxury condos though...Beverly Hills is more known for grand estates. I know there are plenty in Buckhead too, but I don't know if the top echelon of wealth in Buckhead can really measure up to the top echelon of wealth in Beverly Hills or Palm Beach.

Highland Park in the Dallas area was designed by Wilbur David Cook who planned out Beverly Hills. They are VERY similar. Were any of the other areas mentioned designed by him?
The fact that other areas are getting more votes show how little people know about Highland Park apparently.
