Glendale

It’s a city without being an overwhelmingly big city.

Welcome to Glendale

 

A centrally-located, peaceful suburban city close to downtown Los Angeles

 

Located in the San Fernando Valley and the majestic Verdugo Mountains, Glendale is the fourth-largest city in Los Angeles County. But it’s a city without being an overwhelmingly big city – it’s just right, with splendid spots for shopping and dining, and many parks for outdoor activities. Conveniently located around 10 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, Glendale is close to all the popular Los Angeles attractions. 

 

Glendale is widely known for its architecture, namely its large collection of historically significant American Craftsman homes, inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement of the mid-19th century. The city does a fantastic job to preserve its history, while also welcoming new buildings and modernity into the city.

 

This Los Angeles metropolitan area suburb is also known for its Spanish-style homes. In recent years, Glendale has seen an increase in the construction of apartment complexes with top-notch amenities. Together with the city’s charm, it’s no surprise Glendale keeps welcoming new residents.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

 

Glendale offers top-tier shopping and dining experiences. There’s much to see at Glendale’s main drag, Brand Boulevard, lined with several cafes and local shops you’ll love visiting while strolling down the epicenter of the city.

 

You won’t miss The Americana at Brand, a wonderful outdoor mall to shop, dine, and unwind. Besides having more than 80 stylish boutiques and popular global brands such as Nordstrom, Anthropologie, Sephora, Apple, and Urban Outfitters, this L.A. favorite also offers a variety of food and drink options. From specialty food pop-ups to high-end restaurants, the Americana even has AMC Theaters where you can catch a movie. For dining, down post-shopping at Bacari GDL, an Italian-inspired restaurant with Mediterranean influences, or at Bourbon Steak Los Angeles to experience Chef Michael Mina’s love letter to the American steakhouse. 

 

Glendale Galleria is another great spot for shopping with over 200 retail stores and restaurants. Shop at Bloomingdales, Apple, Hugo Boss, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Banana Republic, to mention a few, and dine at tasty restaurants like Kura Revolving Sushi Bar.

 

Glendale locals also enjoy grabbing a meal at Heritage Eatery for a spin on traditional Armenian food, Carousel Restaurant for authentic Middle Easter, and Zankou Chicken for “the greatest chicken ever” according to The New York Times.

 

Things to Do

 

There is plenty to do at Glendale. Street Food Cinema is the superior outdoor movie watching experience, with the best pop culture films, gourmet street food, and good music that will have you coming back again and again.

 

Locals are also very fond of Brand Park. Nestled at the base of the Verdugo Mountains, this 31-acre park is perfect for all outdoor activities. Whether you choose to bike or hike their trails, dribble a ball in the basketball court, play some softball in the field, or simply relax in their picnic areas, you’re bound to have a good time with good views. The park also features a children’s playground and a seasonal children’s wading pool.

 

Visiting the exciting Museum of Neon Art is a must for one-of-a-kind exhibitions. The museum is the only in the world devoted exclusively to art in electric media, exhibiting neon, electric, and kinetic art. 

 

Get the best of downtown Glendale at The Taste of Downtown Glendale, an incredible annual event where arts, music, food, and community come together. Besides getting to know and taste food from over 40 different restaurants, there are also other activities like cooking classes, cocktail/mocktail mixing, panels, restaurant week, a food drive, and more.

 

By touring the city’s historic landmarks, you can go back in time and appreciate old Glendale.
