I am a student at one of the high schools in Glendale and love how easy my commute to school is each day. Overall there are so many cute shops and corners especially with the mall being so close by and the numerous other activities. The neighborhoods are extremely safe and the schools are top notch in the districts surrounding Glendale. Skunk creek runs through Glendale and is a great place to go in family bike rides or even walking the dog at night. Parks are in abundance in Glendale and offer a healthy activity for kids to partake in. Keep an eye out for local farmers markets or local activities because there are many if them! If you are looking at moving to Arizona, make sure to keep Glendale on your list.

Overall Glendale is a great city with a little something for everyone. The stadiums and surrounding areas are great for entertainment, business and fun! Lots of shopping available with outlets. I grew up in Glendale and have watched it evolve beautifully over the years.
Glendale offers many activities throughout the year, especially in Downtown Glendale. There is a Chocolate Festival, Teddy Bear Day and Glendale Glitter just to name a few. The libraries are always hosting fun and artful events, too!
