Glendale, AZ: Arizona's New West

Glendale is a city in Maricopa County's West Valley and is located approximately nine miles northwest of Downtown Phoenix. It has a total area of 59.75 square miles with 59.36 square miles of land and 0.39 square miles of water. Glendale calls itself "Arizona's Antique Capital" and “Arizona’s New West.” It is an ideal blend of the old and the new and the rustic and the luxurious. The population in 2010, was approximately 225,000; and the estimate for 2016 was almost 250,000, which was quite an impressive increase.

Many school districts serve Glendale. It also is home to Midwestern University, the first medical school in metropolitan Phoenix, as well as the Thunderbird School of Global Management's post-graduate international business school. Glendale has two major sports: the University of Phoenix Stadium is the home of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals, and the Gila River Arena is the home of the NHL's Arizona Coyotes of the National Hockey League. Some of the annual popular events include the Glendale Chocolate Festival every February, the Glendale Glitters every December, the Glendale Folk and Heritage Festival, and the Glendale Jazz and Blues Festival.

The West Valley's vibrant cultural scene and attractions appeal to residents and visitors of all ages. The West Valley Symphony brings the sensational entertainment of some of the world’s greatest music on select Sundays at 3:00 PM at the Valley Vista Performing Arts Center in Surprise. For instance, November 19, 2017, will have “2 Symphonies, 1 Concert” with selections by Beethoven and Mendelssohn. December 17, 2017, will present “Happy Holidays” along with the West Valley Youth Orchestra, and there will be “The Nutcracker Suite” and other holiday selections.

The Arizona Challenger Space Center, a living tribute to those brave pioneer Challenger visionaries and pioneers, is currently closed until they move into a new facility in Glendale or Surprise. Glendale has suggested the 6,735-square-foot vacant former Bead Museum in downtown, and those merchants are anxious to have the Center as an attraction. The Center's building in Peoria had recently been sold. The organization, weighed down by a $3 million mortgage for years, wants to relocate where they can jump-start their finances with a city's support.
