The dining experience in the area is exceptional. The assortment of asian cuisine is wonderful. The area has tons of parks to walk around due to the fact that cherry creek trail goes almost all the way through Glendale. The shopping mall is clean and high class. Some of the areas could use some construction and fixing of roads. However, if you are looking for somewhere close to shopping, good hospitals and the airport. Glendale is a great place.

Glendale has a wonderful collection of people, places and shops. It's modern, not heavily congested and not far from downtown!
There are a lot of Caucasians here, it is not very common that you see African Americans, or Hispanics, or any other race/ethnic background. It is honestly very hard to find work in Glendale even at simple retail stores like King Soopers or Target. It's safe, but it isn't ideal as far as diversity.
