Working in Glendale
I love that Glendale is a good location in between vibrant cities like Phoenix and Peoria. I love the beautiful mountainous views that can be seen from all different angles! I would like to see Glendale host more activities for the communities. Some activities could include sports challenges, picnics, and hiking. I love how the state fair brings people all over the state together and I would love for small events to be held in Glendale as well! Glendale should also promote recycling, as the world needs to become more eco-friendly!
Glendale is a nice community that has many things to offer. The education can be spotty depending upon where you are within the city limits. Being in south Glendale, things are a little more "rough" than northern Glendale. Northern Glendale has more affluent, stable communities. There are bars, restaurants, shops and so much more everywhere you go!
The downtown area is lovely with its small businesses and events. You’ll find cute shops and nice dining places downtown! There are a few mountains to hike around/near Glendale! There are also many parks to have fun and relax at. It’s close to Phoenix so it’s a quick drive to the theatre, museums, and so much more!
