I have lived in Glendale/Peoria for over two years now. If you enjoy 120 degree summers, 100% republican views and every one treating you like they're better than you; then this is the place to be. The same stores are on EVERY corner, few vegan/vegetarian options when dining out. Everyone here just gets drunk and watches the Cardinals. If I had known what I know now, trust I would not be writing this from my office in AZ. Please, unless you're a 55 year old republican, take my advice and move elsewhere.
