Glendale is the third largest city in Los Angeles County and is located on the Eastern side of the San Fernando Valley. Nestled at the base of the Verdugo Mountains, this residential suburb does not have as much traffic as other parts of Los Angeles, so it’s a little easier to get around town. The city has a family-friendly, laid back vibe compared to the traffic-infested other areas throughout the city. It’s home to one of the biggest shopping centers in L.A., the behemoth, Glendale Galleria. It’s also home to the Alex Theatre, built in 1925. Disney Studios and DreamWorks SKG also have offices in Glendale.
