It wasn’t always the compelling, culturally rich, host of the Super Bowl and NFC Championship Game. In the 1800’s, Glendale was a desert wasteland. Fortunately for all the happy people who visit and live in Glendale, the Arizona Canal brought water, settlers and industry to the area.
Glendale is “Arizona’s Antique Capital”. Downtown features antique shops and other places of historical and cultural interest. Arrowhead Towne Center and the Metropolitan's first medical school Midwestern University are both located in this northwest Phoenix suburb. With festivals and sports venues, casinos and golf clubs, Glendale provides a wealth of diverse entertainment and benefits from the big city amenities of nearby Phoenix, AZ.
Whether you live here or are just visiting, Glendale, AZ is a great place to be.
