Glendale bills itself as "Arizona's Antique Capital". It is located northwest of Phoenix and is considered part of the greater Phoenix area. During the past decade it has been one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, and is Arizona's 4th largest city.
Glendale is a dynamic city located in the rapidly growing northwest section of the Phoenix metropolitan area and is known for its excellent educational and medical institutions, beautiful neighborhoods and a diversified economic base.
Glendale is also home to the NHL Phoenix Coyotes and home of the NFL Arizona Cardinals, Tostitos Fiesta Bowl and the 2008 Super Bowl and 2015 Super Bowl.
With easy access to all that the Greater Phoenix area offers, Glendale represents an incredible combination of small-town living with urban amenities. Historic Downtown Glendale incorporates two distinct neighborhoods that are home to more than 90 specialty and antique shops. Although the area is seamless to stroll on foot, the difference in neighborhoods is revealed in the red-brick, main-street-style buildings of Old Towne versus the charming bungalows-turned-shops of Catlin Court.
Recreational opportunities abound in the area around Glendale - boating, fishing and water sports are available at 10,000-acre Lake Pleasant, while White Tanks Mountain Regional Park offers hikers a chance to discover ancient Indian petroglyphs or trek to a scenic desert waterfall. From work to play, Glendale has it all.
