Often confused with the private city of Rolling Hills, this wonderful semi-rural city is comprised of 2,181 acres and approximately 8,500 residents. Palos Verdes Drive North runs almost directly through the city. With 16 miles of bridle trails and an abundance of properties zoned for horses, the city attracts many residents who appreciate the equestrian atmosphere and lifestyle. Other neighborhoods within the city are revered for their spectacular city lights views and charming yet expensive country ambience.
Sometimes referred to as "The Heart of the Peninsula" Rolling Hills Estates is the location of the area's main shopping and commercial hub. Within walking distance of Peninsula High School, this section of the city includes an open-air mall called The Avenue of the Peninsula, which features an ice-skating rink, major movie theatre, top retail stores, and a variety of restaurants and other services.
