Glendale AZ, Where There is Always Something to Do

Glendale, Arizona located about nine miles northwest from downtown Phoenix. According to 2006 Census Bureau estimates, the population is 246,531.

The city has a total area of nearly 56 square miles.

The NHL's Phoenix Coyotes and NLL's Arizona Sting began playing in Glendale when Jobing.com Arena (formerly the Glendale Arena) opened in December 2003. Also in Glendale is the new University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals and the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, which opened in August 2006. In 2008, Super Bowl XLII was played there when the Giants faced the Patriots. Both venues are part of the Westgate City Center development plan. The Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball both moved to Glendale, Arizona in 2009 for spring training and share a facility, known as Camelback Ranch-Glendale, which is owned and operated by the city of Glendale.

Glendale bills itself as “Arizona’s Antique Capital,” with support for its claim from both Sunset magazine (2004) and a 1998 article in USA Today. Historic downtown Glendale is filled with antique stores and unique shops, it is also home to the popular Arrowhead Towne Center mall in the northwest part of the city.

Glendale also is home to Midwestern University, metropolitan Phoenix's first medical school, as well as a major post-graduate international business school: the Thunderbird School of Global Management.

If you are looking to relocate to a major metropolitan area, yet live in a community with a friendly small town feel, then Glendale AZ is a perfect   solution for you.
