Walkable, eco-conscious, and vibrant, Glendale is L.A. County’s fourth largest city with a population of more than 200,000, but is consistently ranked as one of the safest mid-size cities in the country. Residents love its 50 public parks, world-class shopping at the open-air Americana at Brand (Barneys New York, Crewcuts, and Tory Burch to name a few), and some of the best Armenian food this side of Yerevan at Carousel Restaurant. Situated 10 miles north of Downtown L.A., Glendale sits at the eastern end of the San Fernando Valley and is bisected by the rugged Verdugo Mountains. Take in a screening at the historic Art Deco Alex Theatre and enjoy a lineup of diverse free concerts (sax quartets, surf rock, and Yiddish vaudeville, anyone?) on the Brand Library Plaza each summer.
