About the Glendale Area
Glendale is a full-service, independent city nestled in the Verdugo Hills of California. It has it's own police and fire department, making it one of the safest cities in Los Angeles County.
The excitement of urban living permeates Glendale. Its unique downtown area is surrounded by dramatic office towers; the four-star Hilton-Glendale and the nationally-recognized Glendale Galleria shopping center, which serves over 50,000 customers a day - more than Disneyland. The recently-opened American at Brand features a unique experience of residential, shopping, dining and entertainment venues.
Within this seven-block area, Glendale's downtown offers fabuluous restaurants, a colorful array of specialty stores, an authentic farmer's market, movie theaters, nightclubs and live-performance venues. The exquisitely restored landmark Alex Theatre, a 1,500-seat performing arts center, brings world-famous performers and productions to Glendale.
A slower, more intimate pace can be found in any one of Glendale's many neighborhood business districts. Whether it is aling the tree-lined streets of Montrose, the quaint landscape of Kenneth Village or the distinctive features of Adams Square, Glendale also provides a sense of small-town living.
