You may think Glendale needs no introduction. After all, it is Arizona’s fifth most populous city, with a population of more than 220,000 people. Glendale is no stranger to the world stage, either. Hosting three NFL Super Bowls and two NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four championship series has shown that Glendale truly has “game”. Being home to Westgate Entertainment District – one of the nation’s fast-growing sports and entertainment districts, with its mix of chart-topping concerts, eclectic mix of retail stores and global dining – has proven that long-time Valley resident Muhammad Ali was correct when he said, “It’s not bragging if you can back it up.”
However, if your only exposure to Glendale is through its storied sports and entertainment legacy, you only know half the story! That’s because this vibrant community has so much more to offer. A new publication, the Glendale Arizona Official Travel Guide, details much more about this world-class city. This 34-page guide is available now and includes several informative stories.
Welcome. Offering an overview of Glendale, this page highlights ways to discover (and re-discover) this glorious city.
