Glendale

Glendale, Arizona is located northwest of Phoenix and is considered part of the Greater Phoenix area. Glendale is the hub of what many people here refer to as the West Valley.

During the past two decades it has been one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, and is Arizona's 5th largest city.

Home to an incredible multi-sport entertainment complex, elite meeting facilities, top-notch accommodations and one of the most renowned downtown shopping districts in America, Glendale is a beautiful blend of new excitement and historic charm. From family festivals to action-packed sports and thrilling concerts, Glendale is a visitor's treasure chest filled with fabulous options.

The 1990s saw infill projects such as Marshall Ranch and Marbrisa Ranch as well as the changing of Valley West Mall to Manistee Towne Center. The shopping area at 59th and Northern avenues is now Northern Crossing, a successfully redeveloped power center complete with a super Wal-Mart and Lowes home improvement store.

Arrowhead Towne Center opened in 1993, and the surrounding neighborhood, Arrowhead Ranch, continues to be one of the most sought after communities in the Valley. Arizona State University's west campus grew into a major educational institution in recent years, and Glendale also became home to Midwestern University. The completion of Loop 101 throughout Glendale opened the city to the rest of the Valley.

Glendale today is the sports destination for all of Arizona, as Gila River Arena and NHL Arizona Coyotes continue to attract fans to new growth in the far western areas of the city. The state-of-the-art University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. is also host to the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl and BCS Championship games as well as the 2008 Super Bowl.
