The excitement of urban living permeates Glendale. Its unique downtown area is surrounded by dramatic office towers; the four-star Hilton-Glendale and the nationally-recognized Glendale Galleria shopping center, which serves over 50,000 customers a day - more than Disneyland. The recently-opened American at Brand features a unique experience of residential, shopping, dining and entertainment venues.
Within this seven-block area, Glendale's downtown offers fabulous restaurants, a colorful array of specialty stores, an authentic farmer's market, movie theaters, nightclubs and live-performance venues. The exquisitely restored landmark Alex Theatre, a 1,500-seat performing arts center, brings world-famous performers and productions to Glendale.
A slower, more intimate pace can be found in any one of Glendale's many neighborhood business districts. Whether it is aling the tree-lined streets of Montrose, the quaint landscape of Kenneth Village or the distinctive features of Adams Square, Glendale also provides a sense of small-town living.
