A charming city has emerged from what was once a desert wasteland in Arizona. Glendale, located northwest from Downtown Phoenix, is home to a rich history, pleasant lifestyle, jazz and blues, numerous outdoor activities, and the Super Bowl 2015. The 4th largest city in Arizona with a population of more than 220,000, Glendale is a dynamic and culturally rich place that is definitely worth knowing.
Founded in 1892, the city is filled with historical places to explore. The Beet Sugar Factory Building and First National Bank of Glendale were built way back in 1906, the El Rey Theatre in the roaring 20s, and the Humphrey and Davidson Building in 1895. More of these historical infrastructures are scattered all over the city including houses, churches, and ranches.
For art and cultural attractions, there are always places like the Arizona Broadway Theatre, Brelby Theatre Company, the Desert Botanical Garden, West Valley Symphony, WHAM Art Association, among others. They hosts shows, exhibits, recitals, and festivities.
Historic Downtown Glendale is a shopping haven and has actually been named as one of the best shopping destinations by USA Today & Sunset Magazine. Throughout its brick trimmed sidewalks, one can find a lot of specialty shops, high-end boutiques, vintage stores, as well as an array of restaurants to choose from.
The general foodie will definitely love eating through the different cuisines offered by Glendale. Bitz-ee Mama’s offers authentic Mexican food while Hot Stop Diner gives a taste of the classic 1950s fast food. For a more expensive taste, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar will do the trick. The Spicery in our 1895 Home offers not only delicious entrees but a piece of charming history as well.
Another reason to love Glendale is the wide range of outdoor activities that is quite typical of the Arizona vibe. The city has several golf courses, parks, over 40 miles of hiking trails and sports clubs that cater to different kinds of sports and hobbies. Luke Air Force Base is also located in the city and is the largest fighter.
