"Safest City in So Cal Perhaps"

Not to be confused with the city of the same name in Arizona, Glendale is a city of 200,000 just to the north of Los Angeles. Not that well-known to outsiders, Los Angelinos view Glendale as a bastion of solid, suburban living. When we in So Cal think of Glendale, we think of sun coated banks on palm tree lined streets. We also think of lots and lots of Ranch Style homes and of classic homes from LA’s past.

Glendale remains, in fact, much of what it has been through my entire lifetime.... Full review
