Can't decide between the suburbs and the big city? In Glendale (JOBS), you won't have to.
Even though it's the third-largest city in Los Angeles County, and home to 194,973 people, this LA suburb has plenty of quiet suburban neighborhoods with tree-lined streets and beautiful architecture ranging from Spanish Colonial to Tudor Revival.
On the outskirts of Glendale (JOBS), you'll find plenty to keep you occupied – from the elegant and historical Brand Library & Art Center to the rugged beauty of the Verdugo Mountains. Downtown Glendale also has some excellent offerings. The Glendale Galleria shopping center serves more than 22 million customers a year – that's more visitors than Disneyland! And you won't want to miss the shows at the Alex Theatre; the legendary landmark has seen countless famous performers and productions in its more than 75 years of operation. Keep an eye on the calendar so you can catch fun events like the annual Glendale Cruise Night Car Show and Street Party, when live music fills the streets and 400 hot rods cruise downtown. And when you want a fix of the big city, downtown LA is only 10 miles (16 kilometers) south of Glendale.
