Burbank is a great city to grow up in, and a great city to raise a family. Very safe neighborhood with a small-town feel, but close enough to Los Angeles and other cities that you still get city-living-perks. All public schools are staffed with incredible educators and hands-on administrators. City center has multiple movie theatres, large mall, chain restaurants, family-owned restaurants, and boutiques. Access to work is basically unlimited; many major motion picture and television companies are based in Burbank, CA and are constantly looking to hire. Other fields of work like hospitality, retail, engineering, and childcare are also in high demand for hire. Diversity is really high compared to other cities in the area. Healthy living is heavily promoted, from farmer's markets to bike paths and public access to gyms, tracks, and pools. Overall, Burbank is an incredible place to live! Anyone would be lucky to be a resident of this amazing town.

Very friendly, quiet and safe neighborhood. Burbank is a city in Los Angeles County, California. It’s home to renowned TV and movie studios, including Walt Disney and Warner Bros. The Martial Arts History Museum exhibits weapons and pop culture ephemera. The Falcon Theatre, founded by director Garry Marshall, focuses on new writing and improv. In the Verdugo Mountains, to the north, trails near the Stough Canyon Nature Center offer San Fernando Valley views.
I LOVE BURBANK! I've been living here for over a decade and I cant say anything bad about it. The community is diverse and the town is really well taken care of. I feel safe living here. Of course you have your random bad acts occur but overall I feel safe walking around at night.

The city I feel is not overpopulated. You can find parking everywhere without having to pay or walk for miles. We have quaint little shops, but also big shopping malls and plenty of restaurants. Being right near the studios is awesome, as well as being so close to neighboring cities. Hollywood is right over the hill, and The Valley and Glendale and Pasadena is just a 20/30 min drive away. I love my city!!
